Habitat in Armenia

Was met in Armenia almost everywhere.

Number in the wild

Current number not available.

Reasons for decrease in number

For the last 50 years the number has sufficiently decreased due to the outflow of water from Lake Sevan, decrease of marshland area and rivers, and general decrease of quality of environment. Other reason is the soiling of rivers and lakes by industrial and agricultural waste which decreases the number of fish in the rivers.

Number in captivity

No data

Measures of protection taken

Hunting is forbidden since 1960.
