FWS: Pyramid Lake Fishery Evaluation to evaluate Lahontan cutthroat trout performance and identify limiting factors for the native fish community


April 2011 - December 2019


This project will determine the population size of Lahontan cutthroat trout (LCT) in Pyramid Lake, Nevada. Tools will be used to evaluate the performance of LCT and identify potential limiting factors. The research will also analyze the effects of Sacramento perch on LCT and other native fishes growth and performance. The project will aid in the development of a long-term LCT management plan.
