Abstract

The European smelt Osmerus eperlanus L. is listed in the Irish Red Data Book as vulnerable. Known from only a few locations around Ireland, its distribution appears to be disjunct and all populations confined to estuarine habitats. The current paper gives an overview of the species’ ecology, biology, status and known distribution in Ireland today, with emphasis on the resident population on the River Shannon from which they were first described in Ireland.
