Dolly Varden with partial albinism

  • Dolly Varden with partial albinism (whitish) appears to be quite rare.
  • We have examined close to 500,000 Dolly Varden at a weir in Alaska and found only 1 with partial albinism.
  • If you look different from the rest of the group of fish will this affect your survival?
  • If you notice in the video two different Dolly Varden attack the whitish one.
  • I suspect looking different will cause this fish to be more easily preyed upon.
