Culturing of rainbow trout for food consumption in Ireland began about 1965. Since then the industry has grown slowly. In 1975 there were only 6 fish farms with total production between 500 and 600 MT (550 and 660 ST). Of this amount only 50 MT were consumed domestically and nearly all the remainder was exported. Of the estimated 500 MT exported, over 95% went to Great Britain and limited quantities to France.
