Wikipedia Abstract

Coregonus sardinella, known as the sardine cisco, or as the least cisco in North America, is a fresh- and brackishwater species of salmonid fish that inhabits rivers, estuaries and coastal waters of the marginal seas of the Arctic Basin, and some large lakes of those areas. Coregonus sardinella is very closely related to the European cisco or vendace Coregonus albula, and also close to the Siberian peled whitefish C. peled.
