Analysis of the nucleotide sequence of the ND-1 gene fragment of mitochondrial DNA in the vendace population in Lake Vodlozero (the eastern part of the Baltic Sea basin) revealed a sequence variant that is closely related to that of the least cisco of Siberia (the Indigirka River). Thus, together with the results of morphological and allozyme analysis of this population performed earlier, the results obtained in this study are suggestive of the expansion of the least cisco to the Baltic Sea basin during the last glaciation.
