Trout is the name for a number of different species of freshwater fish belonging to three different families; genera Oncorhynchus, Salmon, and Salvelinus, all of the subfamily Salmoninae of the family Salmonidae. They are usually found in cool lakes and streams throughout North America, Northern Asia, and Europe and feed on other fish and small insects such as flies, mayflies, and dragonflies.
Sharing a number of similarities with Salmon, they vary in flavour depending on their diet and breed. We source two species of Trout here at My Fish Company, Rainbow Trout sourced in Wiltshire and Sea Reared sourced out at sea. Rainbow Trout has a tender flesh with a slightly nutty, sweet flavour, whereas Sea Reared Trout has a stronger, somewhat earthier taste.
High in omega- 3 fatty acids and protein, trout is one of the healthiest fish you can include in your diet. Best enjoyed with salad, new potatoes, and alongside other meats, it’s the perfect addition to any balanced, nutritious and flavoursome dish.
