First off, here’s some trout facts…
Our indigenous species is the Brown trout (Salmo Trutta). These can be found in many rivers and lakes and being a native fish to the UK they will spawn and grow naturally in the wild. They are quite easy to identify having a golden brown body with bright red spots dotted all over, however this may vary depending on the environment they live in.
Similar to the brown trout there is also the Sea trout, this fish, as it’s name suggests spends some of it’s time in salt water environments.
Rainbow Trout (Onchorynchus Mykiss- previously Salmo Gairdneri):
A non-native fish to the UK but since being introduced (from North America) it is now found in a great many still water fisheries, it is the main breed of commercially farmed trout.
