Introduction: The brown trout (Salmo trutta L)—its origin, distribution and economic and scientific significance

  • J. L. Baglinière
Chapter

Abstract

The brown trout is a species of salmonid with a facultative migratory character (Hoar, 1976) and has a great capacity for adaptation to different environments. This has led to a major degree of polymorphism in this species, which has been classified in the past under different scientific names (Melhaoui, 1985; Elliott, 1989, 1994). However, the interpretation of the polymorphy of the trout remains delicate in terms of genetic differences (Krieg, 1984), but the idea of the existence of a single species, Salmo trutta Linnaeus, actually remains the most likely.
