– The aim of this study was to explain the growth differences of the two sympatric sparsely rakered whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus (L.)) forms in the subarctic Lake Muddusjarvi by comparing their habitat and food selection to available benthic food resources. The average number of gillrakers was 22.9 for large sparsely rakered whitefish (LSR) and 16.8 for small sparsely rakered whitefish (SSR). LSR dwelled primarily in the littoral zone at depths   10 m. LSR and SSR consumed mainly benthic… CONTINUE READING
