150 years and it just keeps getting better
On May 4th 1864, after previous failed attempts to get fertilised eggs from the UK, the first wild brown trout were hatched at the Tasmanian Salmon Ponds after sailing from England in the sloop Norfolk's special ice packed hold containing some 100,000 salmon and 4,000 wild brown trout eggs.
Only a small % of each species survived and after release, the salmon disappeared out to sea never to return, however, the brown trout flourished in the ideal conditions and started what is now arguably the world's purest strain of wild brown trout fishery.
Tasmania's brown's were used to start New Zealand's (and other southern hemisphere countries) trout fishery.
