23. Sea Trout
(Salmo trutta)

23. Sea Trout

This is not a distinct species, but merely a form of the Brown Trout that, like the Salmon, goes down to the sea and becomes large and silvery. It has more dark spots on its sides than the Salmon, from which it can be distinguished because it has from 8 to 10 rays in the dorsal fin (Salmon from 10 to 12), and from 13 to 16 scales in a line from the back of the adipose fin to the lateral line (Salmon 10 to 13); the 'wrist' of the tail is therefore thicker in the Sea Trout. Largest angled*: 22½ lbs.
*up to 1958.
