Abstract
It is believed that the first importation of rainbow ova was made from South Africa by the late Commander Barry in 1910. The offspring from these were placed in the Amboni and the Nairobi Rivers. The main importation of ova took place in 1919 and 1921, and as a result rainbow trout were spread all over the Colony. Since then many other importations have been made, the last being in 1924. There is now a total of 1,666 miles of water containing rainbow trout in the Colony.
