No seriousness in this thread, but out of all the fish in the world, regardless of saltwater or freshwater, and climate etc...
Which fish would you most like to introduce to you local lake/river?

The Bass family from the US OF A .
I really like the small American baitcasting rods and i envy the yanks being able to lure fish for bass.
I like fishing small lures for Perch and pike but would love to catch the hard fighting bass too.

I was always fascinated by a fish, in my 'Freshwater fishes of Britain and Europe', called the Asp: looks like a chub, grows a lot bigger, eats fish, frogs, ducklings etc. I expect that, now so many people do go fishing on the continent, somebody on this forum may have caught one...?
You meet all kinds of animal on the riverbank.

I think some clownfish would be good. The kids could then go home and say they caught Nemo !

Great white shark

That'll be a nice surprise for the people who keep throwing sticks in the lake for their dogs with no regard at all for the anglers on there.

:D :D :D
