Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 10-12; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 9 - 12; Vertebre: 63 - 64. Body elongate and tapering, compressed laterally but less so than lake whitefish, greatest body depth at front of dorsal fin.

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Occurs in near-shore coastal waters, open water of lakes and small to large rivers, and often in current in rivers. Belongs to C. clupeaformis complex (Ref. 5723). Anadromous (Ref. 5951).
