Interior Redband Trout

A species of concern

Interior Redband Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss spp.) are listed as species of concern in under the Endangered Species Act. Habitat loss, fragmentation of current habitat, isolation of existing populations, and hybridization with coastal rainbow trout and cutthroat trout are the principal issues facing inland redband trout.

To protect and conserve the interior redband trout, a Conservation Agreement has been signed among six states, four federal agencies, one non-governmental organization and multiple tribal governments. A Conservation Agreement is a cooperative effort among agencies and tribes to promote conservation of a species, reduce potential threats to the species, and potentially preclude future needs for listing under the ESA as threatened or endangered.
