Bull Trout Trends and Abundance*

(DRAFT)

Cerulean Lake, Quarts Lake, Middle Quartz Lake Core Area

Abundance: 250-1,000
Trend: Stable

In the Cerulean Lake, Quartz Lake, Middle Quartz Lake Core Area, past fisheries management practices of stocking non-native fish could lead to conditions that could potentially limit bull trout abundance and productivity.



*The abundance and trend estimates are from the information provided in the USFWS 5-Year Review. For a comprehensive review of the estimated abundance and trends, please refer to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. 2008. Bull Trout (Salvelinus confluentus) 5-Year Review: Summary and Evaluation.
