Brook Trout

Brook trout are essential to the headwater stream ecosystem and a valuable piece of the region's heritage and economy. Land trusts have even found that the possibility of restoring brook trout to local streams motivates private landowners to take conservation actions. But unless steps are taken to reverse brook trout population decline, the species could be at risk of becoming regionally threatened within three to four decades.


Brook Trout Restore and sustain naturally reproducing brook trout populations in Chesapeake headwater streams with an eight percent increase in occupied habitat by 2025.
