Small-mouth char

The Small-mouth char lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

Small-mouth char (Salvelinus elgyticus) is also endemic to Lake Elgygytgyn. It feeds on zooplankton similar to long-finned char, and also prefers deep water (up to 100 m). However, it displays some migrations, and approaches the shores on still nights. More
