Spawning period: November to January

 

Closed season: October 1st to March 31st

2 types based on phenotype (outer appearance) and genotype are:

- type Zadlascica: distinguishing marbled bodies, rare red coloration

- type Idrijca: distinguishing marbled pattern, red dots and red spots, usually located along the flanks (throughout the lateral line and also at the sides), tiny red spots between back and dorsal fin, often the red dots are present on the dorsal fin and upper and lower edge of the tail fin.

New scientific research in this field will probably provide an even more detailed understanding about this phenotype.

Their length is conditioned by their living habitat.
