SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Coregonus lavaretus

SPECIES NAME(s)

European whitefish

The stock structure of European whitefish is unknown but a population is here considered to exist in Lake Geneva due to gregarious nature of the species (Froese and Pauly, 2011) and to the existence of an International Commission for Fisheries in the same lake (CIPL, 2005).

Fisheries

Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
