Description

The shad lamprey is traditionally very appreciated in Portugal, being a very expensive gourmet dish. They are kept alive in tanks like this one until they are needed in the kitchen. This tank belongs to a restaurant located just by the Mondego river; these fish, however, where probably caught in another river sistem, like the Minho or the Tagus, since the construction of dams and overfishing have seriously reduced the number of fish that make it upstream in the Mondego.

Description from Wikipedia

Lampreys (sometimes also called lamprey eels) are an order of jawless fish, the adult of which is characterized by a toothed, funnel-like sucking mouth. The common name "lamprey" is derived from lampetra, which translated from Latin means "stone licker" (lambere "to lick" + Greek πέτρα "stone").

No range data available.
