The weather outside might be frightful ❄️, but that’s just delightful for Day 11’s fish, the coldwater-loving brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) #GreatLakes #25DaysofFishmas The #25DaysofFishmas calendar, updated with brook trout for December 11.
Brook trout is part of the Salmonidae (salmon) family + genus Salvelinus (chars). Most char may be identified by light spots over a darker body, while "true" trout typically have dark spots on a lighter body #25DaysofFishmas Image of a brook trout with the text
