Scientists Trying to Save Rare Maine Fish Get National Spotlight on ABC News
A group of scientists got their moment in a big national spotlight this weekend when ABC News highlighted their work for all to see.
Their ongoing work to conserve the population of a species of fish that just lives here in Maine - and only in 14 lakes - leans on DNA science to get the job done.
Arctic Char is a type of fish that's only found in a few lakes in the continental United States, and all of them are right here in Maine. They can also be caught naturally in Canada and parts of Russia.
