Native and genetically pure brown trout of the Danubian drainage

A paper by Andrej & Aleš was published in "Ribič", Journal of the Association of Slovenian Fishermen (not the official English name of the organization).

This paper was a response to several papers in the Ribič journal where genetically pure and /or native brown trout were mentioned. Problematics of hybridization with non native brown trout was presented as well as published and unpublished results of our surveys in several Slovenian rivers.

It is worth to mention that Kottelat and Freyhof in their "Handbook of European Freshwater Fishes" (2007) use the almost forgotten name Salmo labrax for native brown trout of the Danubian drainage.
