|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
Uda (Russian: Уда́, Buryat: Үдэ гол) is a river in the Buryat Republic, Russia. It is a right tributary of the Selenge River, which it meets near the city Ulan-Ude. Its length is 467 kilometers (290 mi).
The Uda River is a prime habitat for the pink, chum, red, and coho salmons. Other fish species found in the Uda include the Siberian taimen, two forms of lenok, and Amur grayling. The river is especially important as it remains one of the last strongholds of taimen, which have dwindled in other Siberian rivers. Taimens grow to huge sizes here; specimens weighing 95 kilograms (209 lb) have been caught here.
