Etymology: Coregonus: Greek, kore = pupils of the eye + Greek, gonia = angle (Ref. 45335).
Environment / Climate / Range
Freshwater; benthopelagic; potamodromous (Ref. 51243). Temperate, preferred ?
Asia: Endemic to Siberia. Known from the Ob to the Yana rivers.
Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?, range 8 - 9.8 cm
Max length : 20.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 593); common length : 11.0 cm FL male/unsexed; (Ref. 593); common length :11 cm FL (female)
Never enters the sea (Ref. 26334, 593). Spawning occurs in September and October (water temperature 4-8°C). Maturity is attained in second or third year of life. Both migratory and non-migratory populations exist. (Ref. 593).
