Only one species of fish is presently cultured in Denmark for production as a food fish, and this species is rainbow trout. Previously brown trout (Salmo trutta) was also cultured. The first Danish trout farms were established about 1890 in Jutland, the western portion of Denmark which is attached to the European continent (Bregnballe 1963). In the beginning brown trout was the dominant species cultured. Within a short period of time, however, rainbow trout were introduced and soon became predominant; and more recently, rainbow trout has become the exclusive food fish cultured.
