Abstract

The North Cascades National Park has proposed the removal of eastern brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) from Hozomeen Lake and Hozomeen Creek through the use of the piscicide rotenone to prevent the spread of eastern brook trout into the habitat of the ESA listed bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus). Two treatments of rotenone will be applied over two successive years, followed by monitoring through 2024.
