Former Seattle Times reporter provides insights on the rainbow trout

Former Seattle Times reporter Eric Sorensen who is now the Science Writer for Washington State Magazine/Washington State University News Service wrote an article that weighs the pros and cons of wild vs. hatchery rainbow trout.

Sorensen’s story is a great read, and looks at Troutlodge near the Puyallup River, which is one of the preeminent producers of a hybrid hatchery rainbow trout that can be compared to a Mercedes from a clunker at a used car lot.

The hatchery trout at Troutlodge claim to be certified disease-free, and are a much healthier, stronger trout that even has place on the market of produced live-fish and are shipped worldwide.

The story also looks at the “dumb fish” and what these mass hatchery produced trout that spent a lot of their lives circling in a concrete pond effects are on those in the wild, and also the scientific aspects and resilience of a wild trout surviving all the modern changes that have occurred around them over the past century.
