Cott's team theorizes that burbot
use the sounds to call other fish to the mating ball, as light is limited in deep water below thick ice and snow, and spawning often takes place at night.
The fish from these rivers were compared to burbot
from 20 locations along the Pasvik River on the Norwegian-Russian border and along the Mackenzie River in Canada, where decades of studies have found high levels of mercury that make the fish unsafe.
is the only freshwater cod in existence and is found all over the world.
Since 1996 some community members have believed that the burbot
has been contaminated by toxins in the aquatic system, and notwithstanding preference for burbot
livers, particularly prized by community elders, many fishers reported that they no longer jigged for it.
are fighters of similar virtue as the much-revered walleye, yet receive little of the respect due their tenacity.
Those which can be considered as having either past or present economic value (both domestically and commercially) by their size and relative densities include arctic char, brook trout, cisco (lake herring), lake whitefish, northern pike, walleye, several species of sucker, burbot
and lake sturgeon (Scott and Crossman, 1973).
The local Khaikta river system is generally populated by non-commercial fish species, including gudgeon, Lagovsky's minnow, loach, with small numbers of commercially exploitable umber, Amur ide and burbot
Following a change in global temperatures, the re-introduction of burbot
to the United Kingdom, a species regarded as extinct for over 30 years, will also be on the agenda.

He leads two village fishing brigades, one to trap sylyhar, or burbot
