Bull Trout Recovery Plan Finalized

The Service has finalized its Bull Trout Recovery Plan, which outlines the conservation actions needed to recover bull trout. The final recovery plan was developed after more than a year of collaboration with interested and knowledgeable federal, tribal, state, private, and other parties. At the core of the plan’s strategy are six geographically specific implementation plans, which identify specific conservation actions needed to address threats such as loss of habitat connectivity and passage barriers, non-native fish competition and predation, and the effects of poor land-management practices.
