Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


Lacustrine. Feeds on benthic (spring) and pelagic prey (summer); mainly crustaceans, insect larvae and molluscs. Spawns along gravel to stone shores, in very shallow water. Survival of Lake Hallwil population depends on stocking as eutrophication makes the lake unsuitable for reproduction since 1960 (Ref. 59043). Reaches up to at least 38 cm SL (Ref. 59043).
