The burbot Lota lota is QI because it is the only freshwater member of the cod family. It is native to northern Europe and North America and it is thought to have become extinct in England in the 1970s.

Each year in early February there is an annual International Eelpout Festival on Leech Lake. There is a black-tie dinner on the lake, ice bowling, and fishing tournament. The anglers who catches the biggest burbot wins a 7-foot-tall trophy.

The burbot is the first fish to spawn in the year (January), and is the only fish to spawn underneath the ice.

Maria I've just caught a fish named Maria
And suddenly that name will never be the same to me
Maria I've just kissed a fish named Maria
And suddenly I've found, how scaly a fish can be
