Summary

Naturalized populations of nonnative salmonid fishes have been implicated in the decline of many native aquatic organisms, including amphibians (Bradford 1989), invertebrates (Polhemus 1993), and fishes (Moyle et al. 1986). Potential mechanisms by which nonnative fishes may interact with native biota include predation, competition, parasite and disease transmission, and hybridization, which may operate directly or indirectly (see Taylor et al. 1984 for a general review). Nonnative salmonids are frequently implicated in declines of native salmonids in the western United States (Allendorf and Leary 1988, Young 1995, Duff 1996). For example, loss of threatened Lahontan cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki henshawi) populations in the [...]
