Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from congeners in British Isles by the following combination of characters: mouth subterminal, lower jaw shorter than upper; blunt snout; steel-grey flank, belly white to pinkish or bright orange; flank with numerous whitish spots, mainly in upper half of body; pectoral and anal fins orange-brown to orange-red, pelvic to cherry-red, with white anterior margin (weakly in pectorals); pectoral fin about 2/3 of head length (Ref. 59043).

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Europe: Orkney Islands (Heldale Water, Hoy Island), Scotland in UK (Loch Meallt, Isle of Skye). Considered extirpated on Orkney Islands since at least 1908, but no recent confirmation. This or a similar species has recently been found in Loch Meallt.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in a small eutrophic lake with depth of up to 3 m. Feeds on sticklebacks, molluscs and insect larvae. Attains a maximum size of up to about 22 cm SL (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00466 - 0.01957), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (17 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
