<p>tsovatarekh</p> &#1390;&#1400;&#1406;&#1377;&#1407;&#1377;&#1404;&#1381;&#1389;is it the salmon fish ?

Does not seem like it is a salmon. even if they do jump like salmon. It sounds more like what the jews call salted, dried and pickled - Gefilte fish.

Thank you MosJan for urging me to search. I had known that Tarekh was some kind of fish but never knew which.

From ծով (çov, “sea”) + տառեխ (taṙex, “herring”).

See Ghapantsian page 2140 Where it says tsovayin tarekh is Herring, and that tarekh is limited to Lake Van..

Not to confuse with tareGH the bird.
