Maine Brook Trout – Threats From Invasive Species On The Rise

Bucket biologists and other misguided people are contributing to major threats to Maine’s brook trout population by introducing bass, pike and other game fish to waters around the state. Maine has the most and highest quality brook trout watersheds in the United States, and these introduced species push out the brookies. Brook trout is the #1 game fish in the state and this contributes to Maine’s tourism industry. Unfortunately, other game fish would no doubt also contribute, with the result being the potential decimation of the east coast’s only native trout.
