Document Description
Tahoe Resource Conservation District (Tahoe RCD) is proposing the Target Invasive Fish Control Program at Lake Tahoe (program). Target invasive fish species are species that are contributing to declines in native and recreational non-native fish, alterations in food-web dynamics, and reductions in water quality. Recreational non-native fish species (i.e., rainbow trout [Oncorhynchus mykiss], brown trout [Salmo trutta], brook trout [Salvelinus foninalis], lake trout [Salvelinus namaycush], and kokanee salmon [Oncorhyncus nerka]) are not targeted by the proposed program. The proposed program would authorize a selection of mechanical fish control methods that can be implemented in locations of suitable habitat for the target species over the next 20 years and beyond. Target invasive species include Smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieu), Largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus), Black crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus), Brown bullhead (Ameiurus nebulosus), goldfish (C. auratus auratus). No chemical control methods are being considered in this proposed program.
