Ferox trout are a fantastic example of the genetic diversity that exists within wild brown trout. Since the term ferox was first coined in by the renowned angler scientist Sir William Jardine, various authors have attempted to define what exactly a ferox is, for example: Ferox are long-lived.

Covers ecological and practical aspects of the ferox brown trout -- the huge predatory trout which inhabit the larger lochs and lakes of the British Isles and the mountain and Alpine lakes of Western Europe.

Ferox Trout and Arctic Charr: A Predator, Its Pursuit and Its Prey. Ferox Trout & Arctic Charr book Greer. Swan Hill, References to this book. Scotland's. Ferox trout have an unjustified reputation as cannibals, in part due to the misuse of the word cannibal to describe any trout that eats fish.

Ferox have a marked preference for Arctic charr. True cannibalism is probably less common than might be supposed - but in the absence of other prey fish, ferox will certainly prey on their own kind. Ron Greer wrote a very interesting book called FEROX TROUT AND ARCTIC CHARR It is dedicated to an old friend of mine, Bruce Macauslan from Fort William.

He was instrumental in setting up the Ferox 85 club. Bruce is sadly no longer with us but never a day goes by that I. Ferox trout (Salmo ferox) is a variety of trout found in oligotrophic lakes/lochs of Ireland, England, Scotland and trout is a traditional name for large, piscivorous trout, which in Scotland feed largely on Arctic has been argued to be a distinct species, being reproductively isolated from "normal" brown trout (Salmo trutta) of the same lakes, particularly in Ireland.

Part I, a scarce and collectable book on ferox trout and Arctic charr, was originally published in Ferox Trout are found throughout the Brown Trout’s native range, wherever there are large glacial lakes.

They are found mainly in Scotland and Ireland - often present in large, deep glacier-formed lakes containing Arctic Char or whitefish species.

However, Arctic charr are the preferred diet and the number of ferox in any given loch depends upon the health of the local charr population. The size of ferox is also governed by the size of the prey species.

Ferox eat fish which are generally one third of their own length. Therefore, if the charr population consists of small fish, this will. As their name implies, Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) thrive in the cold waters of the sub-polar regions and are to be found across northern Europe, Russia and North their fellow salmonid the brown trout, charr feature sea run populations (analogous to sea trout), and freshwater resident populations (akin to brown trout), albeit that sea run charr only occur in the northernmost.

Just because a trout may grow very big and become cannibal does not make it a ferox. The ultimate authority on ferox trout in UK is probably a gentleman called Ron Greer who published an excellent book called "Ferox Trout and Arctic Charr" in He and a few others formed the ferox 85 group for the purpose of catching and researching ferox.

The oldest recorded ferox trout in the UK is a fish of 23 years of age. Ferox have a marked preference for Arctic charr. True cannibalism is probably less common than might be supposed – but in the absence of other prey fish, ferox will certainly prey on their own kind.

Growth potential is influenced by the size spectrum of available prey. A glimpse of spawning 'ferox' trout today, despite the fact that they knocked the camera over.

These large predatory brown trout are rarely seen, spending most of their time chasing Arctic charr in the depths of deep Scottish lochs:).

Considered one of the many life history types adopted by the highly variable S. trutta species complex, ferox trout are associated with large, deep oligotrophic lakes and the presence of Arctic.

• 58 sites in Scotland described with ferox trout by Campbell (). • Strong suggestion of relationship between ferox trout and Arctic charr and large lake size. • Genetically distinct from sympatric populations in Melvin, Laggan and Awe.

Spawn in ferox only rivers. • Delayed maturation in ferox trout. A key factor, considered vital for the presence of ferox in any water, is an abundance of smaller prey fish, such as Arctic charr, roach and even brown trout.
