Wow, so many different pike...Thank you for this very detailed information. Now the trick is figuring out which species go with which description.
To complicate things further, the typebase4 lists "Pike/Walleye" as "SCIENTIFIC NAME: THERAGRA CHALCOGRAMMA". Searching that name in Wikipedia gives no results, but just searching "theragra" gives pollock and whiting, among others, in the search results. The more I try to understand this, the more confused I get! Maybe I should have posted this thread on the typebase board, instead of the GTD board.
This is the search page, which includes the one mentioned about whiting.
Ok, in summary, what's getting me is that the GTD entry "Pickerel (walleye)" doesn't make any sense. Pickerel are a type of Pike, and there is nothing "walleyed" that is a true Pike, so it doesn't make sense to put these terms together. What is this entry actually referring to, Pickerel, Walleyed "Pike", or Walleyed Pollock?
Likewise, the typebase entry (I did start a separate thread for this here) for "Pike/Walleye" doesn't make sense either, because the scientific name given in the entry doesn't refer to any kind of Pike.
Yup, that is the exact same search page I got when I checked out what you said you got for results. Notice that the relevance to the search though is only 68%, fairly low in my opinion. Anyway, when you click on that whiting result you get the link I gave you which is a disambiguity (I'm not sure that's really a word) page telling you whiting can be confused for the walleye/Alaskan pollock by some people.
Back to the real issue: my best guesses at this point are you have: 1) just found another piece of typebase errata, most likely a typo or 2) whomever made the typebase entry was using the common names for their local area. If that is the case, than you may never find a "logical" explanation (if any explanation) for why things are being called the names they are. This is why latin names with photos whenever possible are what I really rely on for identifying items.
I think that my second guess is the most probable, especially considering what shoulderblade said above in reply to you.
All I know is that walleye is excellent pan fried in ghee with a compliant nut crust. Mmmmmm!
