The Bull Trout Action Plan is not an official “recovery plan”, but is intended to complement and support the pending USFWS bull trout recovery plan by providing detailed population information and proposing actions to benefit bull trout in the Yakima basin. It was written by biologists from Yakima Basin Fish and Wildlife Recovery Board, WA Dept and Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, with review from a broader local bull trout working group.
The Bull Trout Action Plan was available for public review from June 1- July 2, 2012. We received and incorporated comments from a variety of entities and agencies throughout the Yakima basin. The current version is considered final, though we anticipate an annual review of data and progress towards high priority actions.
The cited references within the Action Plan are accessible via our library. Here you can download digital copies of all reports, data and journal articles, including hard to find files that previously only existed in dusty archives. Thank you to all contributors!
