I didnít catch this fish, it was a picture sent to me, i wish i had, because id look at the teeth, atlantics have one row, whereas browns have multiple rows as well as much larger palletine teeth

...which is the trait of a brown, not atlantic, we are both wondering if somehow its a cross between a brown and atlantic... 


I can say with some level of comfort that it doesn't appear to be a Brown and has no other visual traits/characteristics of a Brown...

It's all good/interesting discussion

well it is a fishing forum so discussions are great....

once again though, I can also state in no way is that a brown or anything but an Atlantic imo

for sure we get some crosses in the hatcheries from time to time, but not necessary to go to the science each time for fish id.

the mouth shape, body shape, fins and markings are all those of an Atlantic....can't see the tail well enough unfortunately

I would add that if folks need a fish id'd, then some care should be taken on the pics......head, mouth body fins and tail ...all important

A good point has been raised in this discusion , fish ID is very important !! ,Immature fish can resemble markings of multiple species , Eg .. the immature Atlantics look like a brook trout , immature browns when silver could be three different species ,,

Guess the main point is the limits allowed to each species ..

An atlantic salmon in most areas is a limit of "1" with a sports lic , conservation "0" ..

If your'e not sure , out rigging and land a salmon better make sure better than a CO pointing out your mistake ..
