Coregonus pollan


Coregonus pollan

Pollan is a freshwater whitefish that is known to occur in five Irish lakes, Lough Neagh, Lower Lough Erne, Lough Ree, Lough Derg and Lough Allen. The Lough Allen population has only been confirmed in 2007. Only the population of Lough Neagh remains abundant and supports a small commercial fishery.

Sometimes classified as a distinct species "Coregonus pollan", Pollan is now considered to be the same species as the Arctic cisco "Coregonus autumnalis", which is not present elsewhere in Europe, but has anadromous populations in Arctic Siberia, Alaska, and Canada.
