Rainbow trout is an allochthonous species in European rivers. It established itself because of easy farming and adaptability to different man made and wild habitats. It does not crossbreed with marble trout but it competes with it for food and space. It is easily discernible from other fish from its rainbow colored flank and small black dots on its whole body. It can grow to 80 cm (31,5') an up to 8 kg (17,5 lb) in weight. It is not a very picky feeder eating both aquatic insects and other fish. The rainbow trout reproduces naturally in our rivers so “wild” specimens are common.
Because of its aggressive nature and a strong fight, it is quite an interesting fish for fisherman.
