Rainbow trout is the most popular farmed trout in the UK. Trout farming began in Lincolnshire in the 1950’s and today consists of just under 300 trout farms producing around 17,000 tonnes per annum. Trout is farmed widely in the UK, but particularly in Central and Southern Scotland, South England and North Yorkshire. The trout sector is committed to monitoring antibiotic usage and focusing on biosecurity and good management practices in order to minimise the use of antibiotics. The sector also continues to encourage the use and development of vaccines.
