By Silverstein, Jeff Our nation's inland waters and coasts provide a wide variety of seafood with diverse health benefits. Fish are high in protein and low in fat, and they have an excellent balance of nutritious fatty acids. As per capita consumption of seafood rises in the United States and throughout the world, ARS scientists across the country are exploring research and development solutions to some of aquaculture's biggest challenges: developing domesticated lines of aquatic animals for...

By Sam Cook, Duluth News-Tribune, Minn. Feb. 17--Most of the ice on Lake Superior this winter is unreliable. It's there one day, blown out the next. Or it's there one day, then piled up in crinkly windrows along shore the next. It isn't the kind of ice a trout angler can count on. But inside the protective breakwalls of the nearly completed McQuade Public Boat Access, anglers have discovered thick, smooth ice that the big lake cannot tamper with. On Tuesday afternoon, four or five...

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - In 2005, a 2.9-inch steelhead left a Washington state hatchery in 2005 with a tiny implanted electronic tag. In April, Maori hunter Dale Whaitiri on Big Moggy Island off Southern New Zealand killed a young sooty shearwater chick, and found the tag. It had traveled 7,700 miles, fascinating scientists an ocean apart who are trying to figure out how it got there. The answer may reveal ecological connections stretching across the Pacific and illuminate the value Northwest...

By LAURAN NEERGAARD WASHINGTON - Papa salmon plus mama salmon equals ... baby trout? Japanese researchers put a new spin on surrogate parenting as they engineered one fish species to produce another, in a quest to preserve endangered fish. Idaho scientists begin the next big step next month, trying to produce a type of salmon highly endangered in that state - the sockeye - this time using more plentiful trout as surrogate parents. The new method is "one of the best things that has happened...

By STORY AND PHOTOS BY CRAIG SPRINGER Guide Don Wolfley steers a small group to the place where the kokanee bite Heron: Kokanee salmon brought to state in 1963 There is no better light than that which comes angular. The glory of the morning is the sun's radiance, moving and ever-changing. It's 7 a.m. and the radiant light is in play and shadows are long. I'm aft in a large pontoon boat on Heron Lake near Chama. Light winds fetch up little silver waves. I'm baiting shoepeg corn...

CHINOOK LANDING, Ore. -- On his first cast of the season, Jim Walker pitched a lure resembling a baby salmon into the dark green waters of the Columbia River and - BAM! - hooked a 24-inch fish with a $4 bounty on its head. But alas, "we didn't hook another one all day," the 73-year-old retiree said. It may not always be easy, but fishermen who can fill their coolers can also fill their pockets - some getting nearly $40,000 - for helping to control the most voracious predator of baby salmon in...

BUCKLEY, Wash. (AP) - It was simple surgery, done in four minutes from a makeshift operating room floating on the Puyallup River. Biologist Andrew Berger sliced open a young steelhead and tucked a vitamin-sized transmitter into the folds of its belly. As a colleague pumped water into the fish's gasping mouth, Berger quickly stitched the wound closed so the 8-inch smolt could continue its journey out to sea. Berger and other biologists with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians hope the delicate...

CASCADE LOCKS, Ore. -- In his way, C404 is kind of cute, with those sea-lion whiskers, soft brown eyes and furry little head. But to many he is a sea lion either from hell - or from Harvard. C404 has driven the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Bonneville Dam to near distraction as he and his ilk sit at the base and munch salmon gathered to continue upriver to spawn. Numerous sea lions head for the dam each spring, but C404 is in a class by himself. He has figured out how to get into fish...

GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The federal government has cut back the critical habitat for 19 species of threatened and endangered Pacific salmon, arguing that an earlier designation demanded by environmentalists was poorly executed and that voluntary habitat improvements will work better. The move announced Friday reduces the miles of protected river in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California by 80 percent - from 167,700 miles to 33,300. In those areas, activities such as logging, construction and...

Brown Trout, Salmo trutta
2013-10-15 12:46:40

The Brown Trout (Salmo trutta) is originally a European species of salmonid fish. It includes both purely freshwater populations, referred to Salmo trutta morpha fario and S. trutta morpha lacustris, and anadromous forms referred to as the sea trout, S. trutta morpha trutta. The latter migrates to the oceans for the majority of its life and returns to freshwater only to spawn. The specific handle trutta comes from the Latin trutta, meaning, literally, “trout”. The lacustrine morph of...

The Lake Trout (Salvelinus namaycush) is a species of freshwater char that is found mainly in lakes of Canada, Alaska, and the northern United States. They have been introduced into many other parts of the world including Europe, South America and some parts of Asia. In Canada, about 25% of the Lake Trout population is found in Ontario. However, only 1% of Ontario's lakes contain trout. The Lake Trout has been known to hybridize with Brook Trout, but such hybrids are almost always...

The Golden Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss aguabonita) is a subspecies of the Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). It is also known by the name California Golden Trout and is native to Golden Trout Creek, Volcano Creek and the South Fork Kern River in California. It is most likely found at elevations 10,000 feet above sea level. This subspecies is also commonly placed with other subspecies of rainbow trout known as redband trout.

Redband Trout, Oncorhynchus
2007-12-18 14:20:49

Redband Trout is a fish name that may be a synonym for the rainbow trout, but is used more narrowly for two subspecies with well-defined geographical distributions in the United States: the Columbia River Redband trout, (Oncorhynchus mykiss gardenia), found in Montana, Washington and Idaho, and the Great Basin Redband trout, (Oncorhynchus mykiss newberrii), found in southeastern Oregon, and parts of California and Nevada. Both subspecies are popular game fishes. The redband trout is...

Fish referred to as trout include: Genus Salmo Adriatic trout - Salmo...
