Loyalsock Creek Brook Trout Research Presentation Public Meeting on April 11th

Brook trout, Pennsylvania’s only native trout and a species responsible for billions of dollars in revenue here in the northeast U.S. are facing a number of threats to their survival.   Shannon White, a Ph.D. candidate at Penn State University, will present findings of her brook trout research in the upper Loyalsock Creek watershed studying their populations, individual behavior and ecology. Shawn Rummel of Trout Unlimited’s Eastern Brook Trout Program will describe brook trout movement and tagging studies in Little Bear Creek a lower tributary. Both researchers will discuss how the information gained may help inform management plans to improve the outlook for Pennsylvania’s official state fish species.  The public is welcomed to the Susquehanna Chapter of Trout Unlimited meeting to be held on Wednesday, April 11th at 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Covenant Central Presbyterian Church at the rear of 807 West Fourth St. in Williamsport (enter off Campbell Street).
