Brook Trout Important Research Topic of Susquehanna Trout Unlimited Meeting

Picture Brook trout are swimming in trouble waters. Climate change and habitat loss are threatening the health of the east coast’s only native trout and a species responsible for billions of dollars in revenue. More troubling, resource managers have a hard time predicting the fate of brook trout and struggle to create conservation plans.  Shannon White, a Ph.D. student at Penn State University, will present a program on the current status of her Brook Trout research in the upper Loyalsock Creek watershed studying their populations, individual behavior and ecology, and how the findings may improve the outlook for Pennsylvania’s official state fish species. The public is welcomed to the meeting to be held on Wednesday, October 12th at 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of The First Presbyterian Church at 102 E. Third St. in Williamsport.
