Comments:
Brown trout are carnivorous and feed on a variety of organisms, which includes aquatic and terrestrial insects, molluscs, crustaceans (especially crayfish), salamanders, frogs, rodents, and fishes. The brown trout has become increasingly popular as a game fish since it was introduced into Canadian waters in 1890. The brown trout can withstand less favourable environmental conditions, lives longer and grows bigger than the native brook trout. Brown trout is the European relative of the atlantic salmon.
