Escapee aquaculture rainbow trout caught in the BrasDor lake. It’s common to catch them in this condition.

Similar black markings are also showing up on Brook Trout and Brown Trout

A friend of mine worked at a fish farm in BC, the fish constantly had sores from bacteria that grew from living in close confines. They pumped them with antibiotics.

I've never seen that in the lake.looks like sores .never ,ever have I seen or heard of lamprays in the bras dor lake

An extremely sad commentary on the aquaculture industry...and what is the health state of what we are eating ???

Sores are common on fish that feed near a fish farm

lamprey could be, but the markings I've seen have been round not to say the poor trout scraped the lamprey off with some flesh. What's with the black marks? I hope research is in progress on this finding.

lamprey prey?
