Salmothymus obtusirostris salonitana (also termed by the common names Solin salmon or Solinka) is an endemic [http://www.dzzp.hr/publikacije/biodiversity_brosura.pdf Biodiversity of Croatia] ] trout species found in the Jadro River in the vicinity of Solin (Dalmatia, Croatia), and in the nearby Žrnovnica River. The upper reaches of the Jadro River including Jadro Spring have been protected since the year 1984, partially due to the presence of this endangered fish species, "S. o. salonitana". [ [http://www.dalmatia.hr/CentralDalmatia/Naturalbeauties/tabid/2233/Default.aspx Split and Dalmatia Counties: Jadro River] ] Over 59 percent of the freshwater fishes of Croatia are classified as endangered. [http://www.dzzp.hr/publikacije/biodiversity_brosura.pdf Biodiversity of Croatia] ] The waters of the Jadro River have been diverted since antiquity, supplying water to Diocletian's Palace as early as the third century AD. [ [http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=17691 C.Michael Hogan, "Diocletian's Palace", The Megalithic Portal, Andy Burnham ed., Oct. 6, 2007] ] This fish species is thought to be endangered not only by historic river diversions, but by increasing urbanisation, overfishing and by the presence of the Rainbow Trout.IUCN2006|assessors=Crivelli, A.J.|year=2005|id=19862|title=Salmothymus obtusirostris|downloaded=2007 May 17]
