Etymology: Coregonus: Greek, kore = pupils of the eye + Greek, gonia = angle (Ref. 45335). More on author: Valenciennes.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Temperate
Europe: Wales: Lake Llyn Tegid (Lake Bala).
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 35.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59043)
Lacustrine, in open water. Spawns in January to February in shallow bays on stones and gravel. Feeds on crustaceans and insects (Ref. 59043).
Status of threat: Threatened by degradation of water quality and introduction of Gymnocephalus cernua, which preys on egg and larvae. A second population is being established in Llyn Arenig (Ref. 59043).
