The Belarusian Post has issued two new postage stamps in its “Fishes of Belarus reservoirs” series. The stamps depict a burbot and a pike.
The burbot (Lota lota) is the only gadiform (cod-like) fish inhabiting freshwaters. The burbot is a tenacious predator, which will sometimes attack other fish that are almost the same size and as such can be a nuisance fish in waters where it is not native.
Pike is a genus of freshwater fish. Pike can grow to a maximum recorded length of 1.83 meters (6 ft 0 in), reaching a maximum recorded weight of 35 kilograms (77 lb). They have the elongated, torpedo-like form of predatory fishes, with sharply-pointed heads and sharp teeth. Their coloration is typically grey-green with a mottled or spotted appearance with stripes along their back, perfectly camouflaged among weeds.
