Predicting the Effects of a Possible Temperature Increase Due to Stream Regulation on the Eggs of Whitefish (Coregonus Lav Aretus) — A Laboratory Approach

  • Svein Jakob Saltveit
  • Åge Brabrand


In the fjord lake Randsfjorden, Norway, the whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus) has four sympatric populations (Enge 1959). One of these spawns in the lower parts of the main inlet River Dokka-Etna, while the others spawn in the lake.
