Rapid Spread Of Hybridization Between Native And Invasive Species Of Trout Is Linked To Climate Change
2014-05-27 03:27:51

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...

Wimpy Fish Call Into Question Conservation Value Of Hatcheries
2014-03-11 09:23:13

Washington State University Washington State University researchers have documented dramatic differences in the swimming ability of domesticated trout and their wilder relatives. The study calls into question the ability of hatcheries to mitigate more than a century of disturbances to wild fish populations. Kristy Bellinger, who did the study for her work on a Ph.D. in zoology, said traditional hatcheries commonly breed for large fish at the cost of the speed they need to escape...

New research from the University of Exeter and King's College London has shown how a population of brown trout can survive in the contaminated waters of the River Hayle in Cornwall where metal concentrations are so high they would be lethal to fish from unpolluted sites. The team believe this is due to changes in the expression of their genes. The research was funded by NERC and the Salmon and Trout Association. The researchers compared the trout living in the River Hayle with a population...

California's Native Fish Populations Under Increased Threat From Climate Change
2013-05-31 10:38:00
