I'll have mine Skipjack's style, please.

Trout is great to eat, but not so good in Australia, where they're stocking lakes and rivers with American trout species, at the expense of native flora and fauna. As reported by The Australian, a group called Native Fish Australia is asking the Aussie government to limit stocking of non-native fish species, at the very least for bodies of water that are home to rare or endangered species. One interviewee noted that environmentalists have taken to referring to the trout as "spotted carp." The government is now performing an environmental review to determine whether stocking procedures should be changed.
