Isn't the mento more coastal and down into the fertile crescent and to
almost the very shores of the Dead Sea. Rod Harper told of a creek
containing them being shelled in Lebanon. One tough fish, but maybe not as
cold tolerant as the anatoliae from inland Turkey.

the Aphanius anatoliae.
Is this the one which lives in a lake which freezes so deep that truck
traffic goes across the lake in winter? Just the fish for the American
All the best!
