Anybody have further information on this technique for eliminating invasive species of fish in lakes??

Wow, this looks like it can knock back not only brook trout populations, but also carp and other undesirable species including those pike heading down the Columbia!

From a fishing perspective those last few generations of male fish would probably be fun to catch.

Interesting but with all things we mere mortals do with the chemistry set the long term ramifications may be unwanted. For instance, we figured out how to manage mosquitos and weeds but those may be partly responsible for the decline in bee populations. Seedless watermelons are cool, except when the group picnic gets a hankering for a good old fashion seed spitting contest. :D How does this differ from polyploidy?

looks like a great idea.

Another Idaho story from a friend.
He was backpacking somewhere, fishing a lake for brook trout when something huge swirled at a fish on his line.
Whoa, something seriously weird in this lake.

Turned out Idaho fish and game had put a single muskie in that lake to help put down the stunted brook trout population.
