Tadajewska M., »bikowski J., łaskowski M., 1997. Diagnostic features of scales of bream Abramis brama (L.) and white bream Blicca bjoerkna (L.). Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 27 (1): 5-26.
Diagnostic features of bream and white bream scales were investigated. Bream scales were collected from seven sites and white bream ones came from four sites. Both environmental conditions and fish growth rate varied in the chosen sites. The scales taken from the analysed populations varied in shape, localisation of the scale nucleus, number of radii on caudal and oral fields, and by different ratio between their height and width.
