Also in the lakes and rivers you can find several species of salmon as brown trout, rainbow trout, landlocked salmon or silver torut, famous for its large size.

The fauna can be seen in national and provincial parks, natural areas and ecological reserves. National parks are made to preserve the flora and fauna of a particular place.
