Yup,they are bit different...and yes they are variety of brown trout...probably the oldest line in Europe.Till all Europe was under mountains of Ice ,during Ice Ages, Skadar basin and part of Mediterranean sea was ice free and scientists suspect that our adriatic brown trout is adlist several 100,000 years older of others that could be found all around Europe and Asia Minor
Another matter,we do have some special species of trout the huge and mighty Marble trout ,and delicate and tender being which we call Softmouth trout....
I can open another thread on board if you like to discus about this subject
