The challenges facing native fish aren’t limited to a single watershed, species or geography, or to salt or fresh water—they are global. Overfishing, introduction of invasive species, destruction of habitat and spawning grounds, man-made pollution and general lack of data are universal factors that endanger native fish, whether they are wild cutthroat in the Rockies, bonefish in the Florida Keys, permit off the Yucatan Peninsula . . . or even Slovenia’s softmouth trout.
