Etymology: Coregonus: Greek, kore = pupils of the eye + Greek, gonia = angle (Ref. 45335). More on author: Kottelat.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic; depth range 0 - 30 m (Ref. 59043). Temperate; 47°N - 46°N, 7°E - 8°E
Europe: lakes Thun and Brienz, Switzerland.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 36.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59043)
Lacustrine, in midwater. Spawns in December, along shores at 0-30 m depth. In both Lakes Thun and Brientz, there are forms (?) of this species spawning as deep as 70 m, some with a deeper body. They were reportedly more distinct earlier and had more distinct spawning seasons. The original pattern might have been blurred by hybridization with introduced species (Ref. 59043).
