Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) has been cultured in Turkey since early 1970s, but major developments took place during the 1990s upon its culture in ponds or cages. Currently Turkey became one of the top trout producing countries. Trout is mainly marketed in domestic markets and consumed locally. Based on demands by consumers, restaurants, hotels and factory catering services, a portion of produced trout is processed mainly as filleted or smoked trout as shown in the photos.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
