Brown Trout

Requirements

Brown trout are mostly found in deeper layers of well oxygenated water environments such as in fast streams, lakes and ponds. They grow best in water having a temperature and pH levels of, 10°C -19°C and 6.8-7.8, respectively. In captivity, it would be best to maintain cooler water temperature during summer to avoid diseases, infection and stunted growth.

Growing

Brown trout are voracious feeders and they grow best in the productive freshwater environment including rivers and streams. They are active feeders at night and fed mostly on invertebrates and fish. If starved or if food present are not enough, they could be cannibalistic.

Harvesting

They can be harvested through nets (seine) in case of mass culture.
