Trout \Trout\ (trout), n. [AS. truht, L. tructa, tructus; akin to Gr. trw`kths a sea fish with sharp teeth, fr. trw`gein to gnaw.]
(Zo["o]l.) Any one of numerous species of fishes belonging to Salmo, Salvelinus, and allied genera of the family Salmonid[ae]. They are highly esteemed as game fishes and for the quality of their flesh. All the species breed in fresh water, but after spawning many of them descend to the sea if they have an opportunity.
Note: The most important European species are the river, or brown, trout ( Salmo fario), the salmon trout, and the sewen. The most important American species are the brook, speckled, or red-spotted, trout ( Salvelinus fontinalis) of the Northern United States and Canada; the red-spotted trout, or Dolly Varden (see Malma); the lake trout (see Namaycush); the black-spotted, mountain, or silver, trout ( Salmo purpuratus); the golden, or rainbow, trout (see under Rainbow); the blueback trout (see Oquassa); and the salmon trout (see under Salmon.) The European trout has been introduced into America.
(Zo["o]l.) Any one of several species of marine fishes more or less resembling a trout in appearance or habits, but not belonging to the same family, especially the California rock trouts, the common squeteague, and the southern, or spotted, squeteague; -- called also salt-water trout, sea trout, shad trout, and gray trout. See Squeteague, and Rock trout under Rock.
Trout perch (Zo["o]l.), a small fresh-water American fish ( Percopsis guttatus), allied to the trout, but resembling a perch in its scales and mouth.
Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
Old English truht "trout," in part from Old French truite, both from Late Latin tructa, perhaps from Greek troktes "a kind of sea fish," literally "nibbler," from trogein "to gnaw," from PIE *tro-, from root *tere- (1) (see throw (v.)). In late 17c. slang, trusty trout was used in a sense of "confidential friend."
n. Any of several species of fish in Salmonidae, closely related to salmon, and distinguished by spawning more than once. vb. (context Internet chat English) To (figuratively) slap someone with a slimy, stinky, wet '''trout'''; to admonish jocularly.
n. flesh of any of several primarily freshwater game and food fishes
any of various game and food fishes of cool fresh waters mostly smaller than typical salmons
Trout is the common name for a number of species of freshwater fish belonging to the genera Oncorhynchus, Salmo and Salvelinus, all of the subfamily Salmoninae of the family Salmonidae. The word trout is also used as part of the name of some non-salmonid fish such as Cynoscion nebulosus, the spotted seatrout or speckled trout.
Trout are closely related to salmon and char (or charr): species termed salmon and char occur in the same genera as do trout (Oncorhynchus - Pacific salmon and trout, Salmo - Atlantic salmon and various trout, Salvelinus - char and trout).
Most trout such as lake trout live in freshwater lakes and/or rivers exclusively, while there are others such as the rainbow trout which may either live out their lives in fresh water, or spend two or three years at sea before returning to fresh water to spawn, a habit more typical of salmon. A rainbow trout that spends time in the ocean is called a steelhead. Arctic char and brook trout are part of the char family.
Trout is the common name given to a number of species of freshwater fish.
