|Scientific Name:||Salmo obtusirostris|
|Species Authority:||(Heckel, 1851)|
Salmo montenegrinus (Karaman, 1933)
Salmothymus obtusirostris (Heckel, 1851)
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Endangered B2ab(v) ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Freyhof, J. & Darwall, W. (Mediterranean Workshop, Dec. 2004)|
S. obtusirostris occurs at only four locations. In all of those locations, it is being threatened by overfishing (sportfishing and for food) and hybridisation with introduced trout. The total area of occupancy (AOO) is less than 500 km², and there is a continuing decline in mature individuals due to overfishing and poaching, especially at Zeta, Imotski and Krka. (Freyhof, J. pers comm).
|Range Description:||It is restricted to a few Adriatic rivers in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro: Krka (very rare), Jadro, Neretva, and Zeta river basins. It is introduced into the Zrnovnica.|
Native:Bosnia and Herzegovina; Croatia; Montenegro
