Living in the clear waters of Fontane springs in Lizzano in Belvedere, the Brook Trout was imported from North America in the 19th century. Today it is a protected species living exclusively in the waters of Corno alle Scale. It is a species of the salmon family together with the brown trout, the rainbow trout, and the Arctic char, with which it shares its characteristic showy coat: its brown back has cream yellow or olive green stripes, while its flanks are characterized by yellow and red spots surrounded by a blue ring.
