Intent[edit]

This template is intended to include those trouts and chars that have WP articles and a recognized common name. Intent was to list only primary species, not subspecies. --Mike Cline (talk) 15:17, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Is there a guideline on use of the plural? "Trouts" seems incorrect. Montanabw(talk) 04:08, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, the plural may be "trout" or "trouts", although I have to confess I've never heard the latter - it sounds like a schoolboy error, lol. However, I suspect the reason for the name here is that there is already a (rather facile) template already called Template:Trout, so we can't use that unless we go through a rigmarole. We could try something like "Template:Trout species" or "Template:Species of trout" though, which would be a little more descriptive. --Bermicourt (talk) 19:12, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
