In 1991 about twenty-five age 2+ specimens of the Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus (L.) (length between 100 and 130 mm) were introduced into the fishless small mountain lake Dvojno Jezero (= Twin Lake) (area 0.5+0.4 ha; max. depth 8 m, altitude 1670 m) in NW Slovenia. The first spawning of the Arctic charr was observed in autumn 1994 and regularly each year thereafter. Fish of different sizes were observed from 1995 onward each year but a fish census was never carried out. Autumn zooplankton… CONTINUE READING
