    Hopefully returned...as Vendace/Powan are protected species and must not be caught by anglers.

    Vendace / Powan also live in just a very few other places, one being in Loch Eck, nr Dunoon, Argyll. "Powan, an ancient freshwater fish, only live in two places in Scotland –Loch Eck in Argyll and Loch Lomond."
