Set B7 - Freshwater Fish - card information

20. Houting
(Coregonus oxyrhynchus)

20. Houting

This fish resembles the other members of the Whitefish group, such as the Powan, Skelly and Gwyniad, in being silvery and having a small adipose fin behind the dorsal fin. Unlike the other species, which are found only in freshwater lakes, the Houting is a sea fish, inhabiting Northern waters, which it leaves only to spawn in Danish or German rivers, being found occasionally in a few Eastern English rivers. It can be recognised at once by its peculiar long snout.
