Opleiding is the term used to describe the fish that spawn in fresh water lakes and streams. These fish make a series of cryptic crepuscular or active, or migratory trips to establish spawning grounds, a process that usually takes three to four months. When they return to the same site, they return after summer’s end, because they need to spawn again in the spring.
Mating patterns are often disrupted during this period, which makes it easy for others to successfully reproduce. This, in turn, causes depletion of nearby populations, so that they become abundant.
Opleiding is present in freshwater and salt water. In freshwater, it is most common in estuaries, where the fish are mostly found in the spring, as they spawn, but it can also be seen in other lakes and reservoirs.
However, there is geographic variation in the abundance of this species. One type of lake has a high density, which is why it is called a classic opleiding lake.
They are often stocked in some areas through a quota system or a seasonal fish hatcheries. They are very popular and available at retail outlets and large chains like Wal-Mart. They can also be found in some local and neighborhood fish markets and other retail outlets.
They have an impressive beauty and are popular with both young and old people. Their existence, in addition to the great aesthetic appeal, is a very important issue. This species has been hunted, but not as much as other bass.
Opleiding is protected in some areas of the world, but many religious groups have banned the killing of the fish. They are also endangered and their population is decreasing each year.
Public understanding of the cultural significance of the species has helped, especially in a recent time when communities are often affected by loss of habitats, such as in the areas affected by the logging industry. Opleiding are protected in many countries and have their own international treaty for protection.
Fishing in lakes and rivers that are frequented by these fish is very dangerous. They are highly sensitive and delicate, so must be handled with care. Avoiding over-fishing and stocking any fish that has even the slightest possibility of becoming a threat, is important.
Regulations vary from country to country. And some countries will not acknowledge the existence of opleiding at all. If you are thinking about visiting a lake or river where you may find this type of fish, it is worth taking a look at the regulations, and any associated costs or restrictions.
As you can see, there are many different kinds of opleiding. Each has its own name and geographic variation. There are numerous species and types of fish, and they are beautiful and exciting.
