The colors in this picture are as diverse as its living space and its eating habits. Wide, slowly flowing streams in deep indigo and mystically swirling tourmaline green pools alternate with light blue and sparkling white water. Red, violet and pink symbolize their impetuous and wild character and the black dots are not only typical identifying features of this type of salmonid, but also reveal their quite predatory instinct.
Since the rainbow trout, actually located in the “wild west” of the North American continent, was shipped to Europe in the 1880s, it has not only become a personified “Forelle Müllerin”, but also a symbol for the fish “trout”. It is only a little more robust and territorial than our native brown trout. The rainbow trout coped with the water pollution and water regulations of the last few decades – unlike their “sister” – quite well and is therefore enjoying its health in many rivers today. Reason enough, not only because of its name, to dedicate a picture to this fish, it lives in what is generally regarded as the synonym for life itself.
