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).
