Shop Trout and Salmon are fed a died additive in their food to colour the flesh.

That brings back my memories of the first trout we had umm yum. Ours did had delicate light pink flesh, wonder if it was the type of feed we fed them. Did you like the taste Scott? They looked delicious.

All of the trout I grew up with in Northern U.S. have white flesh. Rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout, mostly.

I always thought that the pink flesh had something to do with the salinity in the water, like the ocean trout you get from tassie??

With wild fish the colour of a fish is usually determined by their diet:

Lot of yabbies, scud and small fish with high protein gives the pink to orange colour.

Lot of insects with less protein gives a whiter flesh.

Not sure how this relates to AP fish but perhaps protein content in the feed :?:

:cheers:

is right it is the yabbies that give the colour. I have often wondered if it was due to the chitin that is in the yabbie shell.
Brown trout in the Coliban river are a very good colour and have the taste that I feel is caused by these fish feeding on yabbies.

From here :

http://209.85.175.104/search?q=cache:Z-sc12Hl0DoJ:mbm.net.au/health/100-181.htm+fish+flesh+food+additive&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=4&gl=au

Canthaxanthin is a natural orange xanthophyll (see E161a) isolated from some mushrooms, crustacea, fish and also flamingo feathers. It is used to enhance the colour of fish flesh, particularly trout and salmon. There is some evidence that prolonged ingestion of canthaxanthin in large amounts may cause spotting of the retina. Typical products include tanning products, sauces, fish, preserves, breadcrumbs, sweets.

So the protein is just incidental, it is the Canthaxanthin from the yabbies and scud that do the trick. You learn something everyday.

I suspected the lack of colour in the trout was due to their boring diet of barra pellets..

Do trout really eat yabbies? I thought they were only top feeders. However, I guess in the wild, there are all sorts of crustations floating around.

Nice Google work OBO
