Set B7 - Freshwater Fish - card information

29. Powan
(Coregonus clupeoides spp.)

29. Powan

The Powan of Loch Lomond and neighbouring lochs is a fairly well-known member of the Whitefish group (others are the Skelly, Pollan, Gwyniad and Vendace). These fish have a very local distribution in British and Irish lakes; all are silvery, and resemble Herrings. There is a small adipose fin near the tail, showing membership of the Salmon family and difference from the silvery members of the Carp family. They all feed on minute animal life, and their weight varies from a few ounces to two pounds, according to the locality.
