Restoration of Coaster Brook Trout and Their Endangered River

Lake Superior is home to an at-risk form of migratory brook trout (called coasters), some of which spawn in local rivers. These fish were once common throughout the lake, but there is now only one verified breeding population of coasters along the south shore. These fishes’ primary spawning sites are being filled in by sedimentation, but we hope to save the habitat—and boost the population to healthy levels.
