A widespread species. The species inhabits clean fast running water and is threatened by dams and pollution. However it withstands the effects and does not qualify for a threatened or Near Threatened categories. Pollution levels are now lowering and dam construction has almost halted within the species range. 

European Union 27 = LC. Same rationale as above.

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:Habitat:
Main course of small to large rivers, in stretches with strong current. On stone bottom.

Nocturnal, benthic. Spawns in March-May on gravel bottom. Feeds on aquatic invertebrates.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The species is impacted by dams as it needs strong currents to survive. Pollution also impacted the species, particularly in the upper Danube, in the past however conditions are now improving and populations may be increasing.
