Attempts to avoid dams decrease survival in adult fishScientists have discovered that management efforts intended to assist migrations of salmon and steelhead trout can have unintended consequences for fish populations. Juveniles that are transported downstream on boats can lose the ability to migrate back to their breeding grounds, reducing their survivorship and altering adaptations in the wild.Transportation programs have been in place for over three decades to improve the survival of fish...

Most of California's native salmon, steelhead and trout species face extinction this century without quick action to provide proper habitats, a study found. Twenty of 31 species of prized fish are in sharp decline, including the Sacramento River winter run of Chinook salmon, coastal Coho salmon and the Sierra Nevada golden trout, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Our fish need cold, clean water to survive, but they're getting less and less of it, said University of California, Davis,...

By OUTDOORS JIM MORRIS The Ohio Division of Wildlife will release about 25,000 rainbow trout into 25 Ohio waterways during the next four weeks. Included will be five area lakes. Trout are fun to catch, and at 10-to-13 inches are a good eating size. To catch rainbows, use light tackle and line. You can fish by casting a Rooster Tail, Mepps or other small spinner or fish under a bobber with a waxworm, Powergrub or whole kernel corn. There is a daily bag limit of five per...

Six popular fishing areas in Utah now have fish-consumption advisories because of concerns about mercury. The advisory released Tuesday by the Utah Department of Health says that since 2000, fish have been tested for the heavy metal in 261 bodies of water statewide, including 192 streams and rivers and 69 lakes and reservoirs. Of those, 15 had elevated levels of mercury, and advisories have been issued for them. In all cases where high levels of mercury have been found, pregnant women and...

U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service announced new guidelines for shipping live fish across state lines in light of a virus that is deadly for fish. Fish wholesalers have already responded saying that the new regulations will deal a large financial blow to the industry. The virus, called viral hemorrhagic septicemia, or VHS, doesn't affect humans, but it is deadly for fish. It has already accounted for several fish deaths in all of the Great Lakes...

By Stacey Kratz Deseret News On a trip to Sandy's Living Planet Aquarium last month during "Shark Week," I picked up a handy little business-card-size guide that I plan to use when cooking at home and dining out. It's a "Seafood Watch" rating guide published by the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The "Best Choices" are abundant, well-managed and caught or farmed in environmentally friendly ways. The "Good Alternatives" are possible dining options, but there are concerns with how those fish are...

By JOHN HOLYOKE On Tuesday, the news many had expected finally arrived: Federal agencies are moving forward with a plan to expand the protection of Gulf of Maine Atlantic salmon by including fish in the Kennebec, Androscoggin and Penobscot rivers under an endangered species listing. On Wednesday, I received a phone message from a man who was apparently finding a way to remain optimistic. "I was wondering if there's going to be a fall season for Atlantic salmon on the Penobscot this...

By MARK CZERWINSKI There was a definite and rather invigorating chill in the air early Wednesday morning, and, while it may be a little premature, it was enough to get you thinking seriously about the fall. It can be hard to let summer go, even if you don't have school to worry about starting next week. But just because we're getting ready to turn a page on the calendar doesn't mean that opportunities and challenges come grinding to a halt. For example, squirrel hunting season is right...

By KARL MOFFATT; FOR By Karl Moffatt For The New Mexican The Rio Grande Cutthroat Restoration Project's goal is to reduce threats to the state trout's survival and improve its ability to prosper, says Kirk Patten, state fisheries biologist. Success of the department's long-range plan would also nullify the need for the trout's protection under the Federal Endangered Species Act. Such protection could result in land-use and sport- fishing restrictions. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife...

Both subspecies are popular game fishes. The redband trout is...
