Description

Raised in fast-moving currents of the Scottish fjords, Loch Etive is firm, fresh, and delicious. Served raw or seared rare you will have a sure menu winner. Loch Etive trout is ethically-raised, in flowing waters as close to wild as possible. The resulting fish is premium quality and sushi grade, and available all year round.

Loch Etive Steelhead Trout (Onchoryncus mykiss) is from the same family as salmon, sea trout and char.  In the wild it lives in clean, well-oxygenated rivers and lochs, feeding on insects and small fish, and spawns in rivers in the same way as salmon do – moving from salt to fresh water to do so.

The adult fish are highly adaptable, and can live in either fresh or sea water.  Fish living in fresh water tend to be referred to as Freshwater or Rainbow Trout.  Fish growing in seawater or brackish water (a combination of fresh and saltwater) are what we call Loch Trout.  They tend to be much larger than the freshwater trout and are very similar to salmon in size and appearance, which is why they’re also known as Salmon Trout – or as Ocean Trout (Australia) or Steelhead (United States).
