Greenback Cutthroat

Share to

The Greenback Cutthroat was declared the state fish on March 15, 1994. Before environmentally degrading mining operations began in the nineteenth century, the fish could be found in nearly every mountain stream in Colorado. Today, biologists are attempting to restore the population using small groups of Greenbacks found in Rocky Mountain National Park.
