Where to look?
It inhabits most of the non-trout waters, its occurrence depends on the presence of the mussels.
Rosewood has a brightly colored body. It grows up to 6-8 cm. Its meat is bitter. This fish has an interesting reproduction method; during the spawning period, the female develops an ovipositor, which it spawns into the mantle cavity of the live bivalve molluscs. This is where the embryos develop safely. It is often used alive, especially when fishing for chub, perch and zander (just like the sunflower). The presence of rosewood in a natural lake indicates an advanced aging process. This species is not under protection.
