Native Yellowstone Cutthroat Turning the Corner

May 6, 2014 By: Erin Block

Recent data indicates that efforts to suppress invasive lake trout in Yellowstone Lake and restore the native Yellowstone cutthroat trout are working. A teleconference today, Tuesday, May 6, 2014 will address the project’s history, work, and progress. “The data suggests that we have turned a corner in saving this iconic and globally significant population of native trout,” says Jack Williams, senior scientist for Trout Unlimited. “While we have a lot of work left to do, these are very encouraging results.”
