The Fish and Wildlife Service works with its state and private partners to restore native salmonid species on Lake Champlain. Landlocked Atlantic salmon is one such species that have benefited from these efforts. Dams, pollution and sea lamprey parasitism eliminated native Salmon from Lake Champlain by the early 1900's.

Investigating new stocking strategies ensure that what salmon are put into the lake survive to provide a recreational fishery and return to rivers to spawn.
