The type of trout that Acme uses is rainbow trout. Rainbow trout is native to the cold-water tributaries throughout Asia and North America. Rainbow trout is known for its mild taste and delicate texture. It is often described as being slightly nutty in flavor, with white, pink, or orange filets (depending on the fish's diet). While most rainbow trout biomasses living in tributary environments typically reach about 1-5 lbs in size, other rainbow trout populations in lake environments (like the U.S. Great Lakes) have been known to reach 20 lbs! Rainbow trout are part of the genus Oncorhynchus, which puts them in the same genus as several Pacific salmon species. Acme’s Rainbow Trout are farm-raised in Denmark.
