In contrast, the stomachs of Nauyuk Lake charr migrating back to fresh water contained no invertebrates – only capelin (Mallotus villosus), sand lance (Ammodytes spp), and small Greenland and saffron cod. Anadromous Svalbard charr consumed a diet of fish, notably capelin, sculpins, snailfish (Liparis spp), and various invertebrates. ’ This basic understanding of wild attributes should help in understanding some of the basic rearing requirements discussed in the next chapter. Wild Arctic charr of certain stocks, particularly the anadromous forms, are well suited in body shape, flesh color, and size to be raised as food destined to high-end consumers.

In the Yukon Territories a few landlocked, pothole lakes in the Yukon River watershed have been stocked with Nauyuk Arctic charr, and a population of Nauyuk charr was inadvertently, through an escape from a hatchery, established in a tributary stream of the Yukon River near Whitehorse in the 1990s. Morphs Wild populations of resident Arctic charr exhibit a significant degree of phenotypic plasticity which means they are often found in several different but co-existing morphs. One of the distinctive differences is size (Jobling & Reinsnes 1987).

Researchers in northern Norway studying wild anadromous charr noted that spawning females lost more than 80% of their lipid reserves between the fall return to fresh water and the next summer’s descent to the sea (Jørgensen et al. 1997). In non-spawning years, weight loss can be as high as 33% and averages 12% over 115 days of winter fasting.
