US Department of Interior - Acadia NP Fisheries Management
The following letter was in response to an inquiry I made as to why the Park Service was not holding Acadia to the same standard as other National Parks in regard to fisheries management.
Specifically I was concerned with the rampant stocking of lakes and ponds, including nonnative species, the use of live bait, and the lack of protection provided for rare wild native sea-run brook trout.
The quote below is quite telling and quite disappointing. To fail to come to an agreement as to how to manage the parks fisheries resources with the state for over twenty years is troublesome.
