USGS Scientists have discovered that the rapid spread of hybridization between a native species and an invasive species of trout in the wild is strongly linked to changes in climate. In the study, stream temperature warming over the past several decades and decreases in spring flow over the same time period contributed to the spread of hybridization between native westslope cutthroat trout and introduced rainbow trout – the world’s most widely introduced invasive fish species...

By The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) - About four out of 10 freshwater fish species in North America are in peril, according to a major study by U.S., Canadian and Mexican scientists.And the number of subspecies of fish populations in trouble has nearly doubled since 1989, the new report says.One biologist called it "silent extinctions" because few people notice the dramatic dwindling of certain populations deep in American lakes, rivers and streams. And while they are unaware, people...

By Stephen Speckman Deseret News Utah's state fish, the native Bonneville cutthroat trout, should not be listed as a threatened or endangered species, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Tuesday. The national group Center for Biological Diversity disagrees with the decision, saying it doesn't cover a broad enough range for the species or fully weigh the potential impact of global warming. "It completely fails to consider the threat of climate change," said center science...
