Steelhead begin their lives as rainbow trout. After migrating from their freshwater habitats into the ocean they make a physical transformation into steelhead. This exhibit divides their tanks, and by adjusting for factors like salinity, the Aquarium of the Pacific will stimulate a portion of the trout to transform into steelhead.
