Purpose. Nowadays, pikepersh (Sander lucioperca Linnaeus, 1758) is currently one of the most popular fish among both consumers and producers of quaculture products, which attracts the attention of scientists who are constantly improving technologies for working with it. That's why, our goal was to analyse a selection of professional literary sources from different years and, based on their analysis, to provide a brief review of the main commercially valuable features of a species of the native ichthyofauna of Ukraine — pikepersh. To review the modern problems about the existence of populations of this species in various water bodies and ways of solving them as well as the prospects of its cultivation in the conditions of modern Ukraine. Findings. A review of domestic and foreign scientific works devoted to pikeperch over the past sixty years was carried out. Materials related to the main features of the existence of its populations in water bodies of Ukraine, including the Azov and Black seas, were analyzed. The specifics of feeding of this species in the conditions of various Ukrainian water bodies were examined. The fundamental problems preventing the stable reproduction of pikepersh populations in natural conditions were described. The fundamental advantages of its use for biological control of trash fish were highlighted. The general features of the ichthyopathological status inherent to this species were highlighted. Prospective directions for further work with it in Ukraine were clarified. Practical Value. The presented analytical review can be useful for scientists, educators, fish farmers, environmental activists and other persons interested in the ichthyofauna of Ukraine.
