Top 10 Fish Species In Canada

Canada is a water-rich country: there's a lot of water in Canada and around Canada (oceans, lakes, rivers). Because the bodies of water are of different types (freshwater, saltwater), the types of fish are different
as well.

The Top Ten

1 Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

There are 10 species of dolphins and porpoises that can be found in Canadian water, for example:
- On the Atlantic coast: the Atlantic white-sided dolphin, the white-beaked dolphin, and the common dolphin,
- On the Pacific coast: the Pacific white-sided dolphin, the Northern right whale dolphin, and the Dall’s porpoise
- On both coasts: the harbour porpoise and Risso’s dolphin - Metal_Treasure

2 Great White Shark The great white shark, also known as the great white, white pointer, white shark, or white death, is a species of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans.

Never ever mess with them - they are responsible for more recorded human bite incidents than any other shark. The "Jaws" features one of them. - Metal_Treasure

Um did you pay attention in biology because dolphins and whales are not fish.

The list title was supposed to be "Aquatic Species In Canada" - I changed the list idea while finishing the draft but forgot to change the title. My bad, sorry. - Metal_Treasure

3 Humpback Whale The humpback whale is a species of baleen whale. One of the larger rorqual species, adults range in length from 12–16 m and weigh about 36,000 kg.

They can sing producing quite complex songs, no kidding (only the male though) - Metal_Treasure

4 Salmon

It's delicious and it's a lot of fun to catch - Metal_Treasure

5 Sturgeon

Sturgeons come even to big cities - I've seen one in Montreal (not in the zoo) - Metal_Treasure

AAH! D: - PhoenixAura81

6 Walleye

Also known as pickerel and walleyed pike (it's very yummy) - Metal_Treasure

7 Yellow Perch

It's perhaps the most abundant fish over here - you can find them in almost every puddle, haha - Metal_Treasure

8 Muskellunge
9 Rainbow Trout
10 Carp

The Contenders

11 Pike
12 Catfish
