The Sevan trout (Salmo ischchan) is an endemic fish species of Lake Sevan in Armenia. It belongs to the genus Salmo of the salmon family (Salmonidae).

It is endangered, because various competitors have been introduced into the lake during the Soviet period, including common whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus) from Lake Ladoga, goldfish (Carrasius auratus) and crayfish (Astacus leptodactylus). Should the Sevan trout become extinct in its "home" lake, it seems that it will survive in Issyk Kul lake in Kyrgyzstan where it was introduced during the Soviet era. A resolution by Armenia's Council of Ministers in 1976 stopped the commercial fishing of Sevan trout and organized National Park "Sevan". Sevan khramulya is a related fish to the Sevan trout.
