THE SEA TROUT
THE ANADROMOUS TROUT MIGRATES OUT TO SEA FROM ITS NATIVE AREAS TO FORAGE. IT RETURNS TO THE RIVER WHEN IT IS MATURE TO SPAWN. 

THE "LAKE"-TROUT
IS A BROWN TROUT ADAPTED TO A LIFE IN FRESH WATER DURING ITS ENTIRE LIFE CYCLE. IT MIGRATES FROM ITS BIRTH WATER TO A LAKE TO FORAGE. 

 

THE "CREEK"-TROUT

IS A SMALL VERSION OF BROWN TROUT ADAPTED TO A LIFE IN SMALL CREEKS AND OTHER FLOWING WATERCOURSES.
