The fish of 2022: the “corégone”

The fish of 2022: the "corégone"

The Féra was a type of “corégone” endemic to Lake Geneva, which therefore only existed in this lake. It disappeared in the 1920s, probably due to a combination of overfishing, the use of the so-called “great pic” net and competition with another fish, the burbot.

Nowadays, “corégones” in Lake Geneva are the result of repopulations of various animals (from Lake Bourget, Lake Neuchatel and Lake Peïpus in Estonia).
