The Rainbow Trout

The Rainbow Trout (oncorhynchus mykiss) originates from North America. However, thanks to its high status in cuisine and angling, it has been introduced to many areas around the world. The most characteristic feature is its colouring, comprising of numerous spots against a bright ‘rainbow’ stripe which runs the length of the body and from which the species derives its name. Without doubt,the Rainbow Trout is one of the most beautiful and most sporting fish targetted by today’s anglers. Like other trouts it feeds on small water animals, insects and small fish. It  is also a species which adapts very easily to new environments.
