24. Sea Trout Smolt
(Salmo trutta)

24. Sea Trout Smolt

After two or three years in fresh water, the parr of the Salmon and of the Sea Trout become silvery and go down to the sea. They are then in the 'smolt' stage of their life. The Sea Trout smolt can be recognised because its pectoral, ventral and anal fins are more or less orange, while in the Salmon smolt the pectoral fins are darkish, and the others pale. Small Sea Trout (called Finnock, Herling, etc) are more silvery than smolts, and their fins are not orange.
