Sportsmen fish the rivers and lakes of Australia for brown trout which is an introduced species. The acclimatisation of the trout into the Southern Hemisphere took place in 1864 when ova from England arrived safely in Tasmania. Atlantic salmon Salmo salar Linn., and brown trout, Salmo trutta Linn., hatched from ova in the Salmon Ponds hatchery at Plenty. Nearly all the Australian and New Zealand brown trout caught today can be traced back to stocks once spawned in Tasmanian waters.
