A 2019 international symposium titled “Advances in the Population Ecology of Stream Salmonids V” held in Granada, Spain (www.salmonidsymposium.es) included a special session entitled, “The Status and Conservation of Trout and Char Worldwide” that was based on the book “Trout and Char of the World” recently published by the American Fisheries Society. The session was followed by an interactive forum for attendees to identify and synthesize issues associated with threats, status and solutions for the sustainability of native trout at local to global scales. The widespread imperilment of trout inspired an immediate call to action from the scientific community, resource stewards, government regulators, and native trout advocates in attendance.
The forum repeatedly homed in on a set of three themes, one of which is a lack of coordination among or communication about conservation efforts internationally. Here are some resources to aid in communication and share resources within that global conservation network:
Global Trout and Char Network Slack Workspace (A communication and sharing space)
ResearchGate Global Trout and Char Conservation Project (A place to share primary literature, etc. on trout and char).
Advances in Stream Salmonids V Symposium (Granada, Spain)
Trout and Char of the World (AFS Book)
