Cold-Water Climate Shield Manuscript & Online Fish Databases Now Available

Tuesday, March 03, 2015

Based from the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station NorWeST Project the brand new Climate Shield manuscript has just been released, along with an online fish database.

The Climate Shield website hosts geospatial data and related information that describes specific locations of cold-water refuge streams for native Cutthroat Trout and Bull Trout across the northwestern U.S. Forecasts about the locations of refugia could enable the protection of key watersheds, be used to rally support among multiple stakeholders, and provide a foundation for planning climate-smart conservation networks that improve the odds of preserving native trout populations through the 21st century.
