Need help. Trout has a tumor??

Recommended Posts

My friend caught a couple rainbows.   They must be recently stocked.  When he fileted them they had this white tumor looking thing in them.  Anyone encounter this before?   The fishes color was darker than the other ones he caught.

looks like the swim bladder to me.

 

The meat of a stocker trout is usually light in color.

wild  trout usually have darker meat.

Looks fine to me.  

 

@Russ E  that’s not a brook trout.  Male rainbows typically have more character than the silvery females.

Those large white things are the testicles. I know that sounds like a joke but it’s not

Yepper, those are the male reproductive organs.  If it were a female those would be replaced by egg sacks.
