The trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) of Troodos is a fresh-water cultivation, produced in hatcheries on the Troodos mountains range.
History: Since 1960, because of the infertility of the soil of the mountainous area of Troodos, people in many surrounding villages began to utilise the rivers and dams that existed in the area. This led to the development of trout cultivation. Since 1971, villages like Kakopetria, Platres and Foini, have become a destination both for locals and tourists for the consumption/purchase of the trout.
Production method: Trout production is carried out in reservoirs with spring water from the Troodos region. Its production, directly related to climatic conditions (especially temperature and rainfall), is carried out throughout the year.
