"Since November, dozens of anglers have reported catching Pilot Peak cutthroats weighing 15 pounds or more. Biologists are astounded because inside Pyramid Lake these powerful fish, now adolescents, grew five times as fast as other trout species and are only a third of the way through their expected life span."

Giant trout in Nevada"s Pyramid Lake

Let's start a movement to get the DNR to import and stock these fish. Imagine catching a 60 pound trout!

Yaw'l got a problem with non-native species I take it you're for getting rid of all livestock in America except buffalo. Let's get rid of those damn peaches and tomatoes and . . . Seems to me it's important to distinguish between good and bad importations.

Just remember when you're catching that huge trout it was my idea.

You don't have a clue about exotic species. Non Native species brought us many more problems then benefits.. My suggestion to you is go out to Pyramid Lake whenever you gotta hankering to catch them.

You may be right as I don't see why these fast-growing trout with long life spans would be considered an "exotic species." Please enlighten me.

I will try and make this as simple as I can, because this is a very complex issue. But a lake has a carrying capacity for biomass. The biomass includes everything from plants, insects, minnows, small and big fish, includes clams, and mussels too. So when you introduce a non-native super species to a "closed" system, and they start growing and displacing other biomass species from the closed system.

So basically, you cannot just add this trout species to a lake without it harming another species in the lake. A good example of this is the explosion of zebra mussels in Lake Mille Lacs, they will displace other species ability to eat and hurt fish populations in the long run, which is already happening.

A good example of managing a related species was the introduction of Kamloops rainbows into Lake Superior. The rainbows only grew slightly faster and slightly larger than the steelhead that struggle to survive in the lake. They also are more adept at eating the smelt that invaded the lake in the 60's.

A super species like this trout or silver carp, or big head carp can totally rearrange an ecosystem, and likely too risky for our DNR to consider.
