Here are some facts about lake Sevan.
Some people say that the name “Sevan” came from the name of the monastery Sevanavank, which was constructed with the black stone called tuff, although today scientists prove that the lake itself is older than the monastery. Lake Sevan is considered to have a tectonic origin.
Sevan trout is one of the species of the lake, but now it is in danger because of some factors such as common whitefish, goldfish and crayfish. It is surprising but the Sevan trout is likely to become extinct in its own "land" lake and measures should be taken.
