Below, you find the press release.

A plan to protect the native fish population in Yellowstone National Park has been released for public review.

The Native Fish Conservation Plan Environmental Assessment (EA) is designed to guide the management of fisheries and aquatic resources in the park for the next two decades.

The preferred alternative would conserve the Yellowstone cutthroat trout in Yellowstone Lake by increased netting of non-native lake trout. It also calls for removal of non-native fish from some streams and lakes in the park, and re-introduction of native fish into restored habitats. It would allow managers to take an adaptive management approach to native fish conservation, incorporating new information and lessons gained from experience in annual work and treatment plans. This plan does not propose any changes in the Madison or Firehole rivers.

An EA has been prepared for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act and is available on this website, or to request a paper or CD copy of the EA please call (307)344-2874 or write to:

Respondents are encouraged to submit their comments through this NPS website. Comments may also be mailed to the address above or hand-delivered to the park’s headquarters in Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming.
