Did You Know? Steelhead Trout
Did You Know? is a series of brief posts designed to encourage you to care as much as we do about coastal animals, plants and habitats.
Did you know that Steelhead Trout have super strength, speed and leaping ability? Steelheads can go from 0 to 23 Miles Per Hour in a second. By comparison, a 2015 Lamborghini Huracan goes 62 mph in 3.2 seconds or about as fast as a Steelhead Trout. More info. http://www.bcadventure.com/ronnewman/rainbow.phtml.
We sometimes use the terms Steelhead and Rainbow Trout interchangeably but there is a difference. Rainbows live in fresh water and become Steelheads when they reach the sea. Thanks for reading this Did You Know? post!
