About the White Fish
The White fish or the Caspian Kutum is found in the north of Iran in the Caspian Sea and rivers of Gilan and Mazandaran provinces. This type of fish is considered one of the most popular ones. Although the taste of its meat is very popular, serving it is not without difficulty due to the small bones attached to its flesh. White fish spawns from late spring to early autumn. (Spawning place: In the coasts of Iran, a large number of them migrate to the rivers of Lemir, Hawiq, Sefidrud, Shiroud, Khoshkroud, Tajan, Babolrood and also Anzali for reproduction.)
Whitefish are omnivorous in terms of diet, in the larval stages they are feeding from phytoplankton, then along with the growth of the body of zooplankton, shironomide larvae, aquatic insect larvae, mollusks, and worms. During puberty the main food of white fish is mollusks and when it’s the time of migrating to the river to spawn, their feeding stops.
The current main population of whitefish in the Caspian Sea belongs to the spring population, which has more than 98% of reserves. After the spring temperature rotation and the approximate uniformity of water temperature at the surface and depth of the Caspian Sea, Spring whitefish migrate to the shores from the deeper parts of the sea. Usually fish in late winter and early spring they have not reached puberty to feed and grow in coastal and shallow areas and adult fish enter rivers. The entry of whitefish into the river for natural reproduction depends on many factors, including temperature, sea currents, water flow, transparency and oxygen content of the river solution and productive fish for spawning usually enter rivers that they have passed the early stages of their growth (from eggs to migration to the sea).
Spring whitefish move up the river after crossing the estuary and entering the river and in different distances are mainly spawning 800-500 meters from the estuary on sandy and rubble beds. At the beginning of the arrival of spring productive fish to in the river, the eggs are at the end of stage 4 sexual maturation, which occurs shortly after entering and reaching places. Spawning, sexual maturation is completed and the productive female fish is ready to spawn. Spawning begins in spring.
