November 12th Meeting to Highlight South Fork Boise Genetics Study

Make plans to attend an open joint meeting of TU and Boise Valley Fly Fishermen on Thursday, November 12, 2009 at the Boise Public Library to see a presentation on the genetic profile of the South Fork Boise River (SFB) fishery as well as hear a panel discussion of agency and angling community perspectives on Southwest Idaho’s greatest fishing water. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 7:00 p.m. (See more information on back).

Helen Neville with the TU national science team based in Boise will present her findings based on the laboratory analysis of the genetic information sampled from more than 300 rainbow trout, and compare that information with dozens of wild trout populations in the North and Middle Fork Boise Rivers.

Idaho Fish & Game, the Boise National Forest, Bureau of Reclamation, TU and BVFF worked together in 2008 to sample the SFB fishery and adjacent tributaries to gather genetic information on redband or rainbow trout. The information presented November 12 will provide a foundation by which a conservation strategy for the SFB fishery could be developed.
