21. Char
(Salvelinus alpinus spp.)

21. Char

Several forms of this beautiful relative of the Trout inhabit the cold waters of many lakes in the British Isles. Like the Trout, it has a small adipose fin on the back near the tail, but there are no black or brown spots on the sides of the Char, which has often brighter colours, especially on its belly; the spots are red, orange or white, often below the lateral line only. The Char is not usually angled for, and there are no official records of specimen sizes; its maximum weight in British waters is under 3 lbs.
