Survey of vendace in Daer Reservoir and Loch Skene (ENRR554)

The vendace Coregonus albula (L.) occurred historically at four sites in Great Britain, two in Scotland and two in England. It became extinct in Scotland at the Castle Loch about 1912 and at the Mill Loch about 1980. At the two sites in England, the population in Bassenthwaite Lake is considered to be in serious decline whilst that at Derwentwater seems at present secure.
