    WORMS TO THE RESCUE

    IS THERE HOPE AHEAD?
    Can We Obliterate Whirling Disease?

    In Praise Of Whitefish!


    .. STOP HITCHHIKERS reports that there may be hope for combating whirling disease by using resistant tubifex worms. Could this be the answer we've been waiting for? The original article is in the Rocky Mountain News.

    .. Thanks to the lowly Rocky Mountain Whitefish, we may be on the right track. The fish has for decades been reviled as poor fare - unless smoked - (if you can keep them lit.)
    .. Now the disappearance of this native fish has proven to be one key to understanding the vector in the whirling disease story. The fish has become an unsung hero in this battle. It's time we learned to love it too!
