Efforts to eradicate invasive lake trout and bolster the native Yellowstone Cutthroat within the park have reached a milestone.
“According to the Cody Enterprise, the ratio between the trout species is nearing 50–50, an improvement from what was previously a 90–10 domination by the predatory lake trout. Dave Sweet, a Trout Unlimited member and Yellowstone Lake special project manager, has spent the past eight and a half years working to improve cutthroat populations. He said the new findings are encouraging but also noted that there is still much to be done in reviving the native cutthroats. ” – Josh Parks, Field and Stream.
This is great news, but there’s still much to be done if the native Yellowstone Cutthroat is going to win the battle for it’s home. You can help.
