Yellowstone Science Issue Features Native Fish Conservation

The latest issue of Yellowstone Science magazine focuses on native fish conservation in Yellowstone National Park.  There are several articles about native Yellowstone cutthroat trout including our restoration efforts in Yellowstone Lake (see pages 4-17 and 42-74 in particular). The article on pages 52-53 recognizes the hard work of the Yellowstone Lake Working Group, of which TU Idaho Council is an active member.

As you review it, you’ll realize 2013 was a successful year for suppressing lake trout and enhancing Yellowstone cutthroat trout populations, but there’s still plenty of work to be done!
