New Species of Brown Trout discovered in Scotland
”The study, led by Prof Eric Verspoor, found four genetically, ecologically and visually distinctive species that have evolved in the loch over the last 10,000 years.

One of the species, a “Profundal Benthivore", has not as yet been reported to occur in any other loch in the brown trout's native range.“

Thanks, I can say that I heard it here first !

If Dr. Behnke lived in the UK instead of the USA, this would have been part of his graduate school thesis in the 1950's.

Not surprising given that there are dozens of rainbow varieties, for example. Seems natural that browns would also subspeciate. Cutthroat did the same.
