Bull Trout

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

After the turn of the century deteriorating habitats, overfishing, competition from other species, and even intentional killing has decimated the once plentiful bull trout population. As fish eaters with a “drab” name, scientists reason that the Bull Trout is a misunderstood and under-appreciated species of fish in Oregon. By implanting transmitting devices in the fish, scientists hope to help the bull trout by learning more about them.
