Abstract

This paper contains the results of the investigation into the food of trout in New South Wales carried out during the season 1934-1935, and gives details of the stomach contents of 83 Rainbow Trout (Salmo irideus Gibbons), 67 Brown Trout (Salmo fario Linnaeus),and 8 Loch Leven Trout (Salmo levenensis Walker).

The earlier results of this investigation have been presented in two papers which should be consulted by those interested in the conservation of trout.

Considerable interest in the investigation has been evidenced throughout New South Wales, Victoria, and New Zealand. In Victoria the need for, and the economic value of, such an investigation are becoming evident, and it is to be hoped that research will be carried out in other States along these lines.
