Trout Weathervane – School of Trout

Trout Weather Vane (Oncorhynchus mykiss) Schooling


The Schooling Trout Weather Vane, Oncorhynchus mykiss, shown here was originally designed for a customer who wished to place the fish in a dry stream bed. When the wind turns, the three trout school together. The same thing could be done on a fence railing or on a rooftop.

As shown here the fish are crafted of copper with optional gold leafing on the fins, tails and speckles on the sides of their bodies. If preferred, the sculpture pieces can be made entirely out of copper or in a combination of copper and brass. All the fish come with glass eyes to give them a more lifelike and animated appearance.

In biology, any group of fish that stay together for social reasons are shoaling, and if the group is swimming in the same direction in a coordinated manner, they are schooling.In common usage, the terms are sometimes used rather loosely. About one quarter of fishes shoal all their lives, and about one half of fishes shoal for part of their lives.
