Salmo cettii, or the Mediterranean trout, is a species of trout, a freshwater fish in the Salmonidae family.[1] It lives in the Mediterranean region, in Algeria, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and on the Italian mainland in the Magra drainage and further south. It is a non-migratory fish which lives in streams and in karstic resurgences.[2] It is smaller than 40 centimetres (16 in) in length. It is sometimes referred to Salmo trutta macrostigma, which depending on concept is either a more widespread Mediterranean taxon, or a taxon endemic to Algeria.[2]
