Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic. Temperate; 55°N - 54°N, 3°W - 2°W
Europe: England: Lakes Haweswater, Ullswaterand, Brotherswater and red Tarn (Cumbria) in England, UK.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 32.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 59043)
Lacustrine, in open water. Spawns in January to February in shallow bays on stones and gravel. Feeds on crustaceans and insects. Population in Haveswater strongly declined by water abstraction and cormorant predation (Ref. 59043).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00457 (0.00193 - 0.01082), b=3.13 (2.92 - 3.34), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.4 ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (29 of 100).
