Definition of powan in English:
A widely distributed freshwater whitefish of lakes and rivers in northern Eurasia, especially one of a variety occurring only in two Scottish lochs.
- Without char, ferox would never have developed and the only exception to the char/ferox link is, possibly, Loch Lomond where shoals of white fish called powan fill the food-fish requirement.
