Although gill rakers
are a prominent feature of most fish oropharyngeal cavities, the functions of rakers
have not been established and the effects of raker
removal on intra-oral flow patterns and speeds have not been investigated previously in any species.
Lakes near York has potential for pole or light feeder anglers with mirrors and commons to 8lb as well as roach, perch and skimmer bream.
