Where can be met

Was met in Armenia almost everywhere.

Current number not available.

Reasons of 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 out of nature

No data
