Etymology: Coregonus: Greek, kore = pupils of the eye + Greek, gonia = angle (Ref. 45335). More on author: Kottelat.
Environment / Climate / Range
Freshwater; benthopelagic, usually 10 - 30 m (Ref. 59043). Temperate, preferred ?; 48°N - 47°N, 13°E - 14°E
Europe: lakes Attersee and Mondsee, Austria. Also in the Milstatter See and the Ossiach See (Tom Gielink, pers. comm., 2002).
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 40.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 13696); max. reported age: 6 years (Ref. 59043)
Pelagic, usually at depths of 10-30 m. Feeds on zooplankton and small amounts of benthic invertebrates. Spawns in open water close to surface, above depths of 20-40 m (Attersee) or at 2-3 m and close to shore (Mondsee). Spawns for the first time at 4 (Attersee) or 3 years (Mondsee). Spawns in early February - mid March (Attersee), late December - mid January (Mondsee). Individual fishes usually spawn 2-3 seasons. Eggs sink to bottom (Ref. 59043).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.4 ±0.3 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
