Acanthobrama terraesanctae, the Kinneret bream or Kinneret bleak, is a species of freshwater fish in the Cyprinidae family. It is known from two lakes: Lake Tiberias (Sea of Galilee, Lake Kinneret), Israel, and Lake Muzarib, Syria.[1] This is a small planktivorous fish, typically about 14 cm long, occurring near surface in large schools.[2] It is very abundant in Lake Tiberias, whereas there is little information on the other lake, which is small (0.5 km2) and can hold a small population anyway.[1]
