Fish this pretty well resembles a snake or eel. An elongated body of an eel is covered with very small scales, which sometimes is quite difficult to see because of a dense layer of mucus. The back is yellowish-brown with black specks; abdomen yellowish, sometimes reddish, and the sides of the torso stretch three longitudinal black stripes; all fins brown, with blackish speckles. Sometimes you can meet loaches and white – albinos. The name of fish immediately clarifies the ability of a fish to squirm. The average body length of the eel is 18-30 cm and in the Voronezh region it grows up to 80 cm due to the abundance of silt and humus.
Loach likes quiet water, quiet backwaters, deaf streams, lakes and ponds with a muddy bottom. And often you can meet him and in swamped ditches. Loach is one of the most undemanding and hardy fish. He can dwell even in dry ponds where the habitat is inconceivable any other fish, tench and even carp. The ability of the eel to live in waters with low oxygen content due to the presence of cutaneous and intestinal respiration. Swallowing of air is accompanied by a squeak, which gives the presence of eel in small reservoirs. For this feature of loach often called Piskun.
Loach feeds on the remains of uneaten food, decaying plant parts, small bivalves, mud, ooze, and of course the mosquito larvae– bloodworms that are a gourmet treat. This allows loach to consider the nurse, which is so necessary in a pond.
The reproduction of the loach starts in early spring, in March and lasts quite a long time. Spawn eggs (about 150 000 ) in its usual habitat off the coast, in thickets, vigorous climbers often go on tap, and attached to aquatic plants larvae then occur far from rivers or lakes.
As loach said and a living barometer. This behavior is caused by changes in atmospheric pressure. The ability of the eel to predict the weather noticed by people long ago. In good weather, they quietly lying on the bottom. On the eve of bad weather, especially thunderstorms, their behavior is activated: they rush about, often rise to the surface and again go to the bottom. It is noticed that in clear weather loach POPs up once every 15-20 minutes, whereas during and before the bad weather is 10 to 15 times within one minute.
The eel meat is delicious, sweet, a bit greasy. We obviously underestimated this fish, as in Japan, it is an object fisheries, and in some countries loaches bred in ponds and used as food, as this fish is considered a delicacy.
There where a lot of loaches, they take the bait. Peck climbers on both day and night. Anglers say that the eel is a great bait for fishing of predatory fish such as pike, catfish and eel especially.
