Trout Interactions. Brown trout introductions could hamperthe conservation of declining native brook trout populations, according to a U.S.Geological Survey study. Brook and brown trout are valuable sport fish thatco-exist in many parts of the world due to stocking introductions. USGSresearchers found that, in New York State, direct interactions between the twospecies, such as competition for food, have minor effects on diminishing brooktrout populations compared to human-caused habitat disturbances. However,repeated, disproportionate stocking of brown trout in brook trout habitatscould drastically decrease brook trout numbers. "There is great potential forbrown trout stocking to reduce native brook trout populations," said JamesMcKenna, USGS scientist and lead author of the study. "But brown trout aren'tnecessarily causing the current brook trout declines, and managers may be ableto develop sustainable scenarios to support both fisheries." The USGS studyfound that human-induced degradation (from dams and roads, among other causes)of the habitats of both species can affect the populations of either. However,because brook trout do better in forested watersheds, whereas brown trout canthrive in more agricultural environments, degraded watersheds and/or theelimination of forests may affect brook more than brown trout. Improper browntrout management could further threaten vulnerable brook trout populations.
