Sea Trout Two-Sided Fish Mount
The Sea Trout, also known as Salmo trutta morpha trutta, is a fascinating fish species that belongs to the salmonid family Salmonidae. This fish is an anadromous form of brown trout, meaning it splits its time between freshwater and seawater environments.
Sea Trout are found in the coastal waters and rivers across Europe and North America. They begin their lives in freshwater streams and rivers, then migrate to the sea once they’ve matured. However, they return to their freshwater birthplaces to spawn.
Trout have a distinct torpedo-shaped and elongated body that sets them apart. Although they look similar to brown trout, they have a more silvery appearance. These fish have a dark gray or greenish back that fades into a silvery-white belly, along with circular spots on their fins, back, and tail. Additionally, they have a black margin on the edge of their tail.
Sea Trout have a diverse diet depending on their life stage and environment. While in the sea, they feed primarily on small fish, shrimps, prawns, and various marine invertebrates. In freshwater, their diet includes insects, crustaceans, mollusks, and smaller fish.
Anglers often seek out Sea Trout for their fighting spirit when hooked and their delicious taste. They can be caught using a variety of methods including fly fishing, spinning, and bait fishing. The thrill of catching a Sea Trout, especially a large one, is a rewarding experience for any angler.
