New Species of Brown Trout discovered in Scotland
« on: December 02, 2018, 10:37:53 AM »
”The study, led by Prof Eric Verspoor, found four genetically, ecologically and visually distinctive species that have evolved in the loch over the last 10,000 years.

One of the species, a “Profundal Benthivore", has not as yet been reported to occur in any other loch in the brown trout's native range.“
