GWYNIAD. A small Alpine fish found in Pimble Mere or Bala Lake, in North Wales: in Lough Neagh, Ireland, where they are called poltans and fresh-water herrings : and in Loch Mahon, Scotland, where vangis is their common appellation. They resemble large smelts; their scales are remarkably bright; they are much esteemed for their flavour, and supply a wholesome food. —They are shy and difficult to hook, but readily captured with the net.
