Rainbow Trout

Rainbow Trout

Rainbow Trout is a fish in the high mountains. It only survives in clean and fresh water at 6-13˚C. Guguan has a mild climate and pure water from Dajia Creek; therefore, it is a perfect place to rear Rainbow Trout. Because of this, Rainbow Trout has become a specialty product of Guguan. Rainbow trout is called “The Lord of Fish” as it’s deemed the best among fresh water fishes due to its sweet and tender flesh and lack of unmanageable bones and strong odor.
