starting in 1981, backcross was terminated in 1991 due to concerns with
genetics and poor survival
|• The planted trout attracted anglers by 1985
outbreak of a disease in the Great Lakes (epizootic epitheliotrophic disease
virus-EEDv) prevented wild egg collections and stocking of lake trout did not
occur in 1989 to 1991.
|• Stocking in Parry Sound terminated in 1997due
to sufficient natural reproduction and evidence that natural reproduction
should be enhanced with a stocking cessation
