Fish species the taste of which we have already forgotten: what fishes we will never taste again
The following 9 fish species are on the List of Protected Species of Fauna, Flora and Fungi of the Republic of Lithuania: European sea sturgeon, Atlantic sturgeon, zope, lamprey, common nase, lake whitefish, weather loach, lake minnow, and golden spiny loach.
