The sculpins and other endemic fish species of lake Baikal shown below have been photographed by me last year during my dives in lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia. To date, about thirty species of sculpin have been described from Lake Baikal. They have been classified into three separate families: the widespread family Cottidae, the Abyssocottidae and Comephoridae The greatest diversity of Baikalian sculpins has resulted from their radiation into the lake's deep waters, which reach over 1600 metres. I'm not an expert and its difficult for me to differ the several species. So, I would be very pleased if you can help me with the identification of the Baikal fish species below. Please send me an eMail to info@easydive24.de. Thank you!

Reisebericht Baikalsee

In the summer of 2018 together with four other divers from Adlershof diving club, I made my way to one of the best freshwater diving spots in the world: Lake Baikal in eastern Russia. We had been told many times about the lake’s excellent visibility, its incredible drop offs and the unique fauna and flora living there. About two thirds of animal species that reside in its water are said to be endemic. Nothing to do with diseases, it means they live exclusively in Lake Baikal. If you take this into account, its obvious that we had high expectations for our diving trip to Siberia. [more]
