Coaster Brook Trout Restoration Efforts Described in Public Talk

August 25, 2004

The public is invited to the next free talk in the Liquid Science speaker series, hosted by the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Mid-Continent Ecology Division. The talk will take place on September 7 at 7 p.m. at the EPA Gitchee Gumee Conference Center (6201 Congdon Blvd.).

Jeffrey Gunderson, assistant director of Minnesota Sea Grant, will present the final talk of the series, “Restoring Coaster Brook Trout.” Gunderson will describe how coaster brook trout were nearly eliminated from Lake Superior and its tributaries by the early 1900s from human impacts. Research and history suggest that rehabilitation of this native trout will require careful planning and cooperation. Come learn about the biology and management of coaster brook trout, and the partnerships that are creating a future for this magnificent fish.

A reception will follow the talk. For more information, visit Liquid Science online (www.seagrant.umn.edu/speakerseries/) or contact Minnesota Sea Grant by e-mail (seagr@d.umn.edu) or by phone (218-726-8106).

This series was made possible in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources-Waters and Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program through the Coastal Zone Management Act, which is administered through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management.
