Lenoks (otherwise known as Asiatic trout or Manchurian trout) are a genus, Brachymystax, of salmonid fishes native to Mongolia, Siberia, the far East of Russia, Northern China, the Sea of Japan and South Korea.
- Brachymystax lenok (Pallas, 1773)
- Brachymystax savinovi Mitrofanov, 1959
- Brachymystax tumensis T. Mori, 1930
Lenoks can belong to the sharp-nosed or blunt-nosed form. Populations of blunt-nosed lenoks are generally found in different areas than populations of sharp-nosed lenoks.[clarification needed] Brachymystax savinovi typically grow to about 20 inches (510 mm).[unreliable source?] They are relatively round in shape, and speckled with dark brown spots. They usually weigh up to 15 kilograms (33 lb). Their ventrals are usually colored a reddish hue, and their pectoral fins yellowish.
Lenoks in Korea are now on the verge of extinction due to deforestation.
During the glacial epoch, lenoks were landlocked inland of the Korean peninsula.
