Vanishing act

Recent spawning surveys indicate most of Glacier National Park’s west-side bull trout populations are teetering toward extinction, but an aggressive netting project in one lake was successful in suppressing invading lake trout.
There are 17 lakes on the west side of the park that have historically supported bull trout — but 10 of those have been invaded by lake trout migrating upstream from the North Fork Flathead River and the Flathead Lake ecosystem.....



The cure for a fallacious argument is a better argument, not the suppression of ideas.
