Sea or Arctic Char

The sea or arctic char (Lat. Salvelinus alpinus) is mainly to be found in the cold mountain rivers in the north-western, northern and eastern parts of the country. The sea trout is most commonly found in the rivers of the South. The sea char catch picks up in the beginning of July. Ever bigger schools swim upriver until the end of August and in September the rivers are teeming with them. The size of the char is different, two pounders are very common and 3-6 pounders are frequently caught and sometimes even bigger.
