The rainbow trout has been one of the most extensively studied fish, yet it is not well understood. It is prized as a sport fish; it has been harvested to produce thousands of tons of food; it is farmed in many countries around the world; and it is an extremely popular experimental fish and as such is present at many universities and research agencies. It is this varied nature of the rainbow trout that attracted so many participants to the First “Aquaculture”-sponsored Symposium. The lack of a definitive reference on the rainbow trout stimulated the journal, “Aquaculture”, to choose it for this attention. Much material has been written about the origin of the rainbow trout, and there is always great speculation about it. What is clear however, is that the potential of the species has not been realized. This volume consists of a number of excellent review papers, plus abstracts of poster sessions and should be of interest to all those working on, or interested in, the culture and production of rainbow trout.
