The tench is a common European freshwater fish

The tench is a common European freshwater fish that has been introduced to much of the world. Although it is native to the lakes and lowland rivers of Europe and parts of Asia, the tench has become an invasive species throughout North America. The tench was introduced by humans to every continent on earth besides Antarctica as a sport and food fish. They are most often found in still waters with clay or muddy bottoms and abundant vegetation and can tolerate waterways with significantly low oxygen levels.
