cheap can cost the rest
This is a wide channel, which is called the second, then the third. If we take into account an even wider channel, but rather an ice plateau, which stretches from the high native coast, then this channel with a narrow and long island in the middle will really be the third. The long island, which forms the second narrow channel, stretches almost to the Fried mound, and in the south-east side it breaks off with scythes, then emerging from the water, then disappearing.

Just a few words about the loach
The body of the loach is elongated, and in this sense it is in the water at first a bit like a small snake. The specimens I had to catch were no longer than 11 centimeters in length, although there are data in the literature on larger specimens. Continue reading
