|Up to how many eggs can a steelhead trout have? .
I want to know because we will be studying the
steelhead trout and I want to know ahead of time.
(we just got 30 eggs in our aquarium).

This species spawns from March to August in
smaller streams. The female digs and spawns in
several nests depositing 800-1000 eggs in each
These eggs usually hatch 4-7 weeks later.
The life expectancy can be as low as 3-4 years but
generally the steelhead lives 6-8 years. They
first feed on plankton then insects and as they
grow older, crustaceans and other fish.
I dont know exactly, but
steelheads lay many thousands of eggs.The bigger
the female fish, the more eggs she lays. Good
luck hatching your eggs.
