The Brown Trout

The Brown Trout (salmo trutta morpha fario ) is a species of salmonid. Its natural habitat is cold and fresh water. It originally inhabited almost all of Europe and was present in small numbers in Asia. It has, however, has been introduced to every continent except Antarctica. The colouring of the Brown Trout varies considerably depending on its surrounding, but in general, it has black and red spots against a yellow-white or yellowish body colour. As a predatory fish, it feeds on small water animals, insects and small fish. Recent years have seen a drastic decline in Brown Trout populations. Causes have been manifold but underline the species’ vulnerability. Conservation of natural and original habitats, along with assistance in natural reproduction of this species could be its only rescue.
