Northern Pike

Northern pike can be found throughout most of BC, and is known as a commercial and sport fish, and in some areas an invasive species. The territorial nature of this species makes it a dominant predator in the lakes and rivers it inhabits. Typically, northern pike will eat whatever is available—including fish, amphibians, mice, and small waterfowl—and is the reason some areas consider this species an invasive. What can you do? Although this species is not invasive throughout BC, it is illegal to transport them from one water body to another. If this species has been found in a new location, please report it to your local invasive species committee or directly to BC's DFO office.
