Trout Talk

About Trout Talk

Trout Talk is currently the official newsletter of the U.S. Trout Farmers Association, and is published quarterly. It has replaced Salmonid, which in 1977 replaced its forerunners, U.S. Trout News and American Fishes and U.S. Trout News. Salmonid is no longer published, but back issues are available (contact the USTFA office for details).

We encourage members of USTFA to submit information that they feel may be of interest to the membership. Articles in Trout Talk will be edited as necessary, and approved by the president before publication.


Advertising rates will be based on a full year’s commitment, four issues, paid in one lump sum, (2018 will only have three issues with advertising). Fifty extra copies will be printed twice per year so advertisers can hand out the newsletter at the Fall Conference and at Aquaculture America to hopefully increase the USTFA membership. Vendors and/or farms that pay the platinum or gold membership will receive free of charge ½ page of advertising. Silver members will receive a ¼ page ad. If those members wish they can upgrade their advertising and pay the difference. All ads will need to be “camera ready” high resolution sent in a PDF format. Trout Talk will be printed in black and white, however the emailed version will be in color. In the event an advertiser does not want an entire year, ad rates will have a surcharge of 50%. The USTFA reserves the right to refuse advertising that doesn’t comply with the associations mission and objectives that protect and ensure the best interests of trout farmers in the United
