Agust Gudmundsson, President of the New Jersey Chapter of Trout Unlimited
Agust Gudmundsson, President of the New Jersey Chapter of Trout Unlimited talks about the benefits of stocking trout. Some people think that stocking trout is not a good idea - that it squeezes out the wild trout. Gudmundsson argues that there are not a lot of native, wild trout left in New Jersey. For example, his organization only stocks brook and brown trout in the South Branch of the Raritan - not rainbow trout because the wild rainbow trout is doing well enough. Some of New Jersey's streams, however, are starting to make a comeback. Gudmundsson likens trout to "a canary in a coal mine" of a stream’s eco-system.
