Meet the Scottish Steelhead
Steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss irideus) is the rainbow that migrates to the sea. Like all rainbow trout, it’s native to the Pacific coastline of North America, but is now found all over the world. It thrives in our Scottish sea lochs, where we’ve farmed it for nearly 50 years.
In the sea, the Steelhead grows far bigger, leaner and more athletic than a river trout, akin to a salmon, but with a sweet, delicate flavour and outstanding firm texture.
We are passionate about trout, and only farm the Steelhead at Kames, because it’s exceptional.
