Etymology: Coregonus: Greek, kore = pupils of the eye + Greek, gonia = angle (Ref. 45335). More on author: Cuvier.
Environment / Climate / Range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Temperate, preferred ?; 48°N - 46°N, 6°E - 8°E
Europe: lakes Neuchâtel, Bienne and Morat, Switzerland. Introduced in Lake Geneva and other lakes and reservoirs in France and Awitzerland. Extirpated in Lake Morat (Ref. 59043).
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 45.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59043)
Lacustrine. Males reproduce initially at 3-4 years, females at 5. Spawns on gravel near shore or, depending on population, in depths up to 50 m. Spawning time depends on depth and apparently on temperature at that location, from November to December in shallow water to February in deepest places (Ref. 59043).
