Join the Windham Regional Commission as they explore and discuss the essential components of a healthy trout population and the importance of clean water to supporting healthy aquatic organism populations.  Representatives from across the State will join us to discuss fish populations, fish habitats and what the new Vermont Clean Water Act will mean for Vermont’s waterways, towns, and farmers.

As a seasoned fisherman will confirm, “no clean water, no fish habitat, no trout.” Sometimes referred to as the streams’ “canary in the coal mine,” trout require high quality, oxygen-rich cold water streams that can support the food-chain that they depend upon while also providing good habitat throughout their life cycle. Sedimentation from erosion, nutrient loading from nitrogen and phosphorus runoff, and other water quality and habitat degradations have an enormous impact on the survival of our fish and aquatic organisms.

Recorded on January 11, 2016 at the Marlboro Graduate Center in Brattleboro, VT.
