Brook trout have lived in North Carolina's mountain streams since the last ice age of 10,000 years ago. The Southern Appalachian-strain brook trout is the state's only native trout. However, their population has been declining because of development-related pollution and poor land management practices associated with agriculture. Besler discusses ways the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission has partnered with other groups to ensure streams where the brook trout live are protected and restored.
