Less successful at surviving in lakes and water systems shared by other species of fish, they have adapted to hostile regions unsuitable for other fish by becoming generalists (Johnson & Burns 1984). They will eat any living creature, provided it is small enough to fit in their mouths. They have a wide size range, presumably to meet the different challenges of the Arctic environment. By following the retreating continental glaciers, they are able to take advantage of habitats unoccupied by species they would normally compete with.

Dominance was persistent and unending, with smallest fish sometimes harassed to death. Access to food resources appeared to be the primary issue. These aggressive interactions were initiated when fish approached within the personal space (2 to 3 body lengths) of one another and occurred in territorial and non-territorial encounters. Another study showed differences in aggressiveness between hatchery-reared and wild Arctic charr. To study the effects of hatchery rearing on charr destined for sea ranching or restocking, researchers in northern Norway took a group of hatchery-reared first generation 34 Arctic Charr Aquaculture Arctic charr whose wild parents came from Mokkeland Lake, and compared them to a group of wild-caught charr of the same age and parental stock.

8). Yearly growth rates of anadromous Arctic charr prior to going to sea for their first time are highly variable, with parr reaching the smolt phase often uniform in size but variable in age. In various Canadian stocks of Arctic charr, the age at first migration to sea was 3 to 7 years, at a length of 87–220 mm, corresponding to weights of about 10–100 g.
