    NATIVE - WILD - INVASIVE - INTRODUCED

    JUST WHAT FISH IS YA AFTER ?

    .. From Fishing Jones comes a note about an article in the Smithsonian Magazine about the sometimes not so quiet battle about introduced fish and the 'sportsmen' that foster their perpetuation. The FISH STORY gives us an insight into the introduction of non native trout, and their propagation through aquaculture . . . worth a glance.
    .. The Invasive Species Weblog lets us know that:
    "the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently released a draft report about climate change and aquatic invaders called "Effects of Climate Change on Aquatic Invasive Species and Implications for Management and Research". The 70-page document is aimed at those who assess and manage aquatic resources in order to provide them with information about the potential impacts that climate change could have on invasive species found in both aquatic and wetland ecosystems. It includes a state-by-state review of whether climate change is being taken into account when developing management strategies for aquatic invasive species and identifies gaps in information available to managers.
    .. The Whirling Disease Foundation has announced a conservation partnership with Hodgman. Hodgman will provide financial support for the foundation's research projects and the annual Whirling Disease Symposium. Also joining in the support is Scientific Anglers. They are offering a free fly box, (with special logo and custom tied flies,) to everyone that donates $25 to the foundation.
