Scientific Name: Coregonus danneri
Species Authority: Vogt, 1908

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Vulnerable D2 ver 3.1
Year Published: 2008
Date Assessed: 2008-01-01
Assessor(s): Freyhof, J. & Kottelat, M.
Reviewer(s): Bogutskaya, N., & Smith, K. (IUCN Freshwater Biodiversity Unit)
Justification:
Still frequent in Lake Traunsee (25 km²). Hybridisation has been shown to occur (over the past 30 years) with introduced coregonids but it is not thought to cause a decline in the number of mature individuals of C. danneri as the hybrids seem to rarely survive. There is a potential threat of the introduction of other coregonids which may have a negative impact.
