Analysis of the mtDNA control region in six individual brown trout Salmo trutta from the Catak Cay River (Tigris basin) revealed a single, new, haplotype, 1·0 to 1·5% divergent from five other Da lineage haplotypes analysed, that groups with the Danubian clade with low bootstrap support. This highly divergent haplotype combined with unique phenotypic characteristics underscores the novelty and native status of this population, which has probably been isolated from other brown trout lineages for at least several hundred thousand years.
