Morphology | Morphometrics
Distinguished from other congeners in Turkey and adjacent basins by having 19-20 scale rows between the end of the adipose-fin base and lateral line (vs. 12-17); 32-35 scale rows between dorsal-fin origin and lateral line (vs. 23-32); and caudal peduncle depth 11.5-12.6 % SL (9.3-11.5 % SL, except in Salmo cf. macrostigma).
This species inhabits clear and very swift flowing water, with stone and pebble bottom (Ref. 87713).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01047 (0.00495 - 0.02215), b=3.03 (2.86 - 3.20), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.6 ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Moderate to high vulnerability (49 of 100) .
