Before the Industrial Revolution there were hundreds of rivers and streams from Long Island to Maine with populations of sea run brook trout, a special kind of brook trout that seek out rich food and shelter in our estuaries. Prized for their flavor, size and strength, these salter brook trout became the focus of America’s first sport fishery during the 1800’s.

By the turn of the century their habitat had been so degraded by dams and pollution that now only remnant populations hang on in our streams and estuaries. Come find out more about sea run brook trout and how people are working to restore this once prized sport fish to our local streams. Part of our Free WaterWatch Lecture Series.
