Odd question about trout

teleute | Oct 22, 2013 01:19 PM

We're from Canada, and on our last two trip to Europe my husband and I noticed something odd. We ordered trout once on each trip, and both times it was a white fish that we received, not the deep orange red we're used to or even a paler shade of orange/pink. Is this a strange thing where maybe the menus were translated wrong, or an otherwise fluke occurrence, or is there just a very different variety of trout there than we're used to? (For reference, one time was in Amsterdam and the other was I believe in Switzerland on Lake Geneva.)
