Etymology: Coregonus: Greek, kore = pupils of the eye + Greek, gonia = angle (Ref. 45335);  fontanae: Named for the German poet Theodor Fontane (1819-1898) who published several books reflecting his love for the state Brandenburg.

Max length : 12.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 52872)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from the sympatric Coregonus albula, the geographically close Coregonus lucinensis and the spring spawning Coregonus trybomi by: scales in lateral line 69-77 + 3; interorbital distance 25-30% of dorsal head length; head width between dorsal end of opercular openings 8.2-9.7% SL; body depth at dorsal fin origin 16.4-21.2% SL; length of last gill raker in upper branch of first gill arch 120-186% of opposite outer gill filament; 11-18% of dorsal head length; pelvic and pectoral fins hyaline; slow growth, mature females 8.7-12.6 cm SL (Ref. 52872).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in lakes, inhabiting deep water layers of 20-60 m. Undertakes migration above 20 m at night (Ref. 59043). Most abundant below 20 m depth (Ref. 52872). Syntopic with Coregonus albula in Lake Stechlin (Ref. 52872). Feeds mainly on Cladocera and Copepoda (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=0.00457 (0.00190 - 0.01102), b=3.14 (2.93 - 3.35), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
