This summer I participated in a Student Conservation Association (SCA) internship with the National Park Service (NPS). I was serving in Yellowstone National Park with the Aquatic Science Section on a gill netting crew. Our primary focus was to eliminate as many Lake Trout from Yellowstone Lake as possible to help promote the growth of the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout population. I spent my days on a gill netting boat, pulling nets and untangling the fish from the nets, Lake Trout were killed and all live Cutthroats were put back in the lake. When I left the internship we had killed over 120,000 Lake Trout.
