Researchers Investigate Possible Rapid Evolution Of Stocked Fish

The lakes in the alpine areas of the Wind River Range have historically been fishless – that is until humans started stocking them for recreational use. The introduction of these fish changed the ecosystems of the lakes, and specifically, the microscopic animals that float through the water, known as zooplankton. Now, University of Wyoming researchers want to know if the change in zooplankton has influenced a change in the fish.
