Lake Möckeln is the third largest lake on the Småland lake plateau after Bolmen and Åsnen, and is located southwest of Växjö, near the border with Skåne. The mutton is a nutrient-poor so-called brown water lake or dystrophic lake with relatively low pH, naturally. Like other similar lakes in Sweden, Möckelen was affected by acidification and calcification occurs regularly.
Among the fish species found in Möckeln are perch, pike, goose, eel, lake, braxen, roach, birch, darling, marrow, goose, leg lover, cycling and moth. The Maal is Sweden's largest lake in Sweden, and in Möckeln one of its four occurrences in the country (the others are Emån in Småland, Båven in Södermanland and Lower Helgeåns water system, Kristianstad water park in Skåne). Especially in the northwestern parts of the lake, around the river Agunnarydsån, the template has a solid and stable stem. The meal is a frozen fish and must be immediately released if caught. The largest mold caught in Möckeln and documented (in 1994) weighed 52 kg. The most common fish species in the lake are pike, perch, gossip, braxen and roach. Especially fishing for gös is very popular in the lake.
The lake has an area of 48 km² and is approximately 136 meters above sea level. The largest depth is 12 meters. The length is about 16 kilometers from north to south. The largest latitude in the northern parts is almost 7 kilometers, but the southern and middle parts are narrower about 1 to 1.5 kilometers. There are three streams, the larger Helge, which ends in the Möckeln at Diö in the north, and the two smaller Lilla Helge and Agunnarydsån, which originate in the lake in the northeast and the northwest respectively. The outlet from the lake takes place at the Älvanäs and Byvärma properties in the northwest, where Helgeån then continues south towards Hanö Bay in eastern Skåne. A previous outlet was found before the sea crash in the southern part of the lake. This outlet south connects the Möckeln with the drive through the now lowered lakes in Älmhult and Ormakulla. The water flow southward now drove missing mills in the villages Slätthult and Kongstorp. On the other hand, due to sea cuts and municipal market expansion in the 1900s, this outlet has now turned into a momentary stagnant water supply to Möckeln. The water level may vary about 1 meter up or down the middle water line (137 to 135 meters above sea level) due to precipitation and run-off, but the lake is not regulated. [Source: Wikipedia]
