The highlands of Papua New Guinea have been supporting trout populations since their first recorded introduction in 1949. Regular stockings began in 1971 with the establishment of a government hatchery. Eyed-eggs for the hatchery are imported from Australian trout farms. Both rainbow and brown trout have become established in several small rivers above 1200 m (4000 ft) altitude.
