Well, UKpro, I'm siding with Esox on this one.  The European/Asian perch is completely geographically isolated from the North American one, and most scientific thinking is that the two are separate species.  The European one (P. fluviatilis) is HUGE compared to the N.A. one (P. flavescens) , and is often called the Redfin Perch as opposed to the N.A. Yellow Perch.  For a good, but general comparison, go to the link below to see the difference.

They dont even look the same.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

Those world records can not be correct.  The New York state Musky is 69 lbs. 15 oz.  This list shows the record as 65 lbs.

That fish, caught by Art Lawton in the St. Lawrence River, is no longer recognized by the IGFA as the world record, due to conflicts regarding the actual size of the fish (doubts were raised as to how accurate the weight was, based on length and girth). So the IGFA now recognizes the current record, which came from Chippewa Flowage, in Wisconsin (It was Chippewa Flowage, was it not? Correct me if I'm not...). However, the state of NY still recognizes Lawtons fish for the state record.

If there are European perch in Canada they were probably illegally imported. I know it would be illegal to do so here in the U.S. However there are a few renagades doing some reaseach on them here in closed systems but they aren't supposed to have them. I was told this by a PHD colleague but he had no names.

one of the main differences i can see in these fish is that ours doesnt have red fins, and the UKs does ;D

I respectfully disagree. Our male perch can have intensely red fins especially during spawning time while the females tend to stay yellow to orange. Here's my avatar perch I caught last year and even though she is a female she has some pretty bright fins. Males have even more intense fins.

European perch are much larger- the hump on the back and the striping is completely different

If the genetics of European perch and American perch are slightly different then sure they are different "species".    But if we are going by looks and size alone.   Then The Florida bass and the New York bass would be differnt species.     Like someone mentioned on the first page, the scientific names of the two perch are different then they are different fish.   

You cannot say two fish are different species by size or looks, because as we all know that one perch can look totally different from the next we pull through the same ice hole and also differnt from fish to fish and lake to lake and deep water and shallow, murky and clear water.     
It doesn't matter if you didn't catch anything as long as you had fun.

Well you guys aren't going to believe this but the American Fisheries Society had decided the Florida Largemouth is so different from the northern largemouth it is designating it as a separate species. So much for look a like fish species.

Yep European perch is slightly different from it's North American counterpart and gets bigger. The European Zander is also simlilar to the walleye and it also gets larger.

guys ,this is the same yellow perch ;D. If u wanna proof go to the old continent and do some ice fishing. I were ice fishing In Europe for 13 years and 3 years in this country, one thing i can say it's the same yellow perch ( Perca fluviatilis ). And the colors are the same. Back home in Lithuania the record is above 2 KG it's more than 4Lb.It's not rare to catch 2-3 Lb perch in Europe or Russia.

Kinda like the difference b/t the northern pike here and there.  For some reason there have been some huge pike caught over there, but none of them are recognized as records.

Always wear clean underwear, cuz ya never know when the paramedics are gonna have to cut your pants off.

yeh, did u read how much stuff IGFA requires.u need to prepare big time to make a claim.and the big catch most of the time is only once in the lifetime opportunity.U don't know when,where,if u gonna have it or not. i'm sure u caught a lot of big fish ,but did u ever try to claim it somewhere not even IGFA.It's all about a time and money and not everyone can afford it especially in other countries.
