Sea Trout Genetics
What an enigma! What a challenge for the Sea Trout! Genetically there is absolutely no anatomical differences between the sea trout and the brown trout native to rivers. Both fish share the same Latin name 'Salmo Trutta' from the salmonidae family. The sea trout goes under many names through Ireland, England and Wales, sewin, whitling, peal, herling are all names for sea trout either in different areas or their different stages of growth.
For the fly fisherman these are really different fish, probably out of a need for richer feeding, the Sea Trout heads out to sea after a year or two as fry and parr. The sea trout is rarely seen in the estuaries and sea that are its home for a good part of the part of the year, however, the sea trout runs back to rivers and streams every spring and summer to spawn.
Sea trout generally spawn each year of their adult lives and may return to the river many times. On each return migration they will have put on typically two pounds (1kg) or more.
