Brachymystax lenok (Manchurian trout; Lenok)

Language: Danish; Finnish; Korean; Mandarin Chinese; Russian

Wikipedia Abstract

Brachymystax lenok, the sharp-snouted lenok, is a salmonid fish distributed in rivers and lakes in northeastern Asia. It formerly included the blunt-snouted lenok, but recent authorities typically treat the latter as a separate species, B. tumensis, based on differences in morphology and genetics. The sharp-snouted lenok is widespread overall, but some populations, especially in China, have declined due to overexploitation and pollution. This species grows to a length of 70 centimetres (28 in) TL.
