THE WELFARE OF WILD TROUT: WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

Presenter: Russ Cohen from the Mass. Dept. of Fish & Game Riverways Program
Co-sponsors: SVT (Sudbury Valley Trustees), OARS, and GBTU (Greater Boston Trout Unlimited)

The presence of naturally-reproducing wild trout are an indicator that a stream is in relatively good shape and is likely to support a host of aquatic and other sensitive organisms that share wild trout’s demanding habitat requirements. While there are more wild trout streams around than many people realize, these high-quality habitats are threatened and could be lost unless they are better recognized and protected. Russ’ presentation covers the characteristics of healthy wild trout streams, the various human activities that can degrade trout habitat, and what actions people can take to help protect and restore these valuable resources. Representatives from OARS and GBTU will be on hand.
