Inhabits piedmont and montane stretches of rivers and streams with stone or gravel bottom. Occurs from upstreams to uppermost reaches in mountains. Feeds on invertebrates, terrestrial insects and diatoms. In still habitats, this species takes terrestrial insects and zooplankton as food. Undertakes upriver migration and spawns in shallow tributaries. Larvae and yearlings stay in spawning streams while adults migrate downriver. Abundant in the upper reaches of rivers and invasive in Don drainage (Ref. 59043).
