The 2012 Bull Trout Action Plan (BTAP) is not in itself an official “recovery plan”. It is a locally-written document that complements the USFWS Bull Trout Recovery Plan by providing detailed population information and proposing specific actions and next steps that will benefit bull trout in the Yakima Basin.
The BTAP was originally written in 2011-12 by biologists from Yakima Basin Fish & Wildlife Recovery Board, WDFW and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, with ongoing review from the Yakima Bull Trout Working Group and public review from June 1- July 2, 2012.
The cited references from the 2012 Action Plan are accessible via our BTAP Digital Library. Thank you to all contributors!
