Caption: Trout eggs. Developing fish eggs of the trout. Trout species, members of the salmon family, lay their eggs in fresh water, regardless of whether they spend their adult live in fresh water or the sea. The species spawn in spring or autumn, the female scraping out a hollow with her tail in gravel at the bottom of a stream or river. The male then deposits his sperm (milt) upon the eggs. Only about 5% of the eggs become fertilised, the others being washed out and eaten by other fish.
