WHITE TROUT (Salmotrutta), or Sea Trout. This fish migrates up the rivers, spawns, and returns to the sea. In shape it is thicker than the common trout; the sides silver; the head smooth, thick, and dusky, with a gloss of blue and green ; the back of a similar colour, growing fainter towards the side line. The back is plain, but the sides, as far as the lateral line, marked with large distant irregular shaped spots of black; the lateral line straight; the sides beneath that line, and the belly are white; tail broad and even at the end.
