(Walbaum, 1792); SALMONIDAE FAMILY; also called mackinaw, Great Lakes trout or char, salmon trout, landlocked salmon, gray trout, great gray trout, mountain trout, laker, tongue, taque, namaycush or masamacush, siscowet, fat, paperbelly, bank trout, humper

It is found throughout most of Canada and well into Alaska as well as the Great Lakes and in sections of the western U.S. where it has been introduced. In the southern portions of its range, or where introduced south of its native range, it seeks out the cooler waters of deep lakes. In northern lakes it may occur in either shallow or deep water. The siscowet (Salvelinus namaycush siscowet), one of three recognized subspecies, is found in Lake Superior at a depth of 300 600 ft (91 183 m). It is called a”fat” by commercial fishermen because the flesh is exceedingly fat and oily compared to the other two subspecies. Of all the chars, it is the least tolerant of salt water and is the only freshwater fish ranging into the far north of Canada and Alaska that has apparently not crossed the Bering Strait.
