Significant genetic differences (FST = 0·032) were found between littoral and profundal morphs of Arctic charr Salvelinus alpinus from Fjellfrøsvatn, northern Norway, using microsatellite DNA analysis. The morphs had strong reproductive isolation in time and space; the segregation of a separate profundal morph is rare in postglacial lakes.
