As in Spain, culturing fish for food use is a relatively recent development. All production began only within the past 15 years. In 1976 there were only four private individuals culturing rainbow and brown trout. The area of production is in northern Portugal in Paredes de Coura, Vila Conde, Manteigas, and Visev. About 250 MT (276 ST) of trout, nearly all of them rainbow, are produced annually. All production of trout is consumed domestically. There are practically no exports or imports of freshwater cultured fish of food sizes.
