TU Launches a New Citizen-Science Effort to Catalog Wild and Native Trout

Written by: Phil Monahan

Today, Trout Unlimited today launched TroutBlitz, “a citizen-science initiative aimed at enlisting everyday anglers to help the organization catalog and map healthy populations of wild and native trout all across North America.” All you need to do to participate is go fishing. Isn’t science fun?

By using the cool online TroutBlitz interface, participants can help TU identify native and wild trout populations. The data will also identify intact watersheds, important tracts of intact habitat, and waters that could benefit from restoration work, reconnection efforts, or even native fish reintroduction efforts.
