Saving native trout in Yellowstone Lake

Yellowstone Lake (in the famed park of the same name), has had decling native trout levels for the last decade.

“The East Yellowstone Chapter of Trout Unlimited in Cody is spearheading an effort with Yellowstone National Park and the U.S. Geological Survey to raise $169,000 to fund a research project that could help save Yellowstone Lake’s native cutthroat trout. The four-year research project would be conducted by scientists from Montana State University and the USGS who would try to find ways to eradicate unwanted lake trout by targeting their eggs and spawning beds with a variety of lethal methods, including electroshocking, ultrasound, microwaves, biodegradable polymers and fish-killing toxicants.”
