Could be proteus. What’s the location?

If Peruvian, it’s likely proteus. Lots of Peruvian fish in the market right now.

Im not a pike expert by any means but looks kind of like a Sveni to me. Then again a lot of the pikes look alike to me.

Sveni has more prominent blotching.

The saxatilis complex is large and widespread. From Columbia down to Uruguay. It’s almost impossible to tell without location specifics. Peruvian fish have been showing up a lot lately along with Columbia. we can rule out Lepidota since they’re found in southern Brazil and Argentina/Uruguay.

If it’s Peruvian it’s likely proteus or something similar. Columbia than it’s sveni, anthurus,
