Biology

Freshwater. Ammocoetes live in silt, sand or fine pebble substrate in the middle and lower sections of rivers where the current is absent or slow, at water depths of 10-50 cm, among submerged plants (Rumex acetosella, Polygonum sp., Juncus sp.). Adults are also found in the same general habitat as both life stages are commonly caught together. Metamorphosis is believed to occur prior to mid-September when fully metamorphosed individuals were first caught. Adults are nonparasitic. The spawning period is undetermined (Ref. 89241)..
