Pygmy Whitefish

Pygmy whitefish are small and slim with big scales. The few pygmy whitefish that have been found in Alberta have been from Waterton Lake and parts of the upper Athabasca River. They have small egg-shaped markings on their sides called “parr” marks. Pygmy whitefish are usually found in the deep parts of cold lakes and in some fast, cold mountain streams.
