Survival of Rainbow Trout fry in the wild: a comparison of two whirling disease resistant strains
Many animal populations have experienced population declines due to a broad range of factors such as habitat loss and degradation, invasive species, disease, and climate change. Introduced pathogens are known to have dramatic effects on populations. Following the establishment of the parasite that causes whirling disease (Myxobolus cerebralis) in Colorado, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) developed a whirling disease resistant Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) for stocking known as the GRxCRR.
