Migrants losing ground
Fish #58A Brown Trout Salmo trutta ~ Barbara Eger
Oil on board 30 x 35 cm
The brown trout is a European species of salmonid fish that includes purely fresh water populations, as well as the sea trout. The latter migrates to the ocean and returns to the river to spawn.
The brown trout is a medium sized fish and can live up to 20 years, but a high percentage doesn't recover from the spawning and subsequently die.
The trout can be found around the world and is not considered endangered. However, individual stocks are threatened by environmental pollution, overfishing and rising water temperatures.
