Trout, Rainbow - Indian Brook Trout Farm

Rainbow Trout is a member of the Salmon family. Rainbow Trout are easily distinguished by their rainbow-like colors on their sides. All Rainbow Trout sold domestically is farmed. It is the oldest aquaculture industry in North America dating back to the 1880’s. They reach market size of 8-10 ounces in 8 to 12 months. Indian Brook Trout Farm is located in Jackson County, Michigan. This 90- acre commercial fish farm raises Rainbow Trout from egg to market size in 14 months. The flesh of the Rainbow Trout is white, pink or orange in the raw state and when cooked the color lightens. Rainbow Trout are delicate, with a delicious and mild nutty flavor. The flesh cooks up flaky and tender. The farm produces 1 million pounds of fish year-round under the supervision of 7 full-time biologists. Artesian wells supply the farm with pure 50 degree water for the ponds. Indian Brook Trout are raised free of antibiotics, pesticides and hormones.
