Bull Trout - mini paperweight ('Opal' Art Glass)
The official fish of Alberta, bull trout are native trout with the largest natural distribution of all trout in the province.
This species is found in all river systems with headwaters in the mountain.
Over-harvesting of this species has led to a decline in population. Protection from angling may result in recovery, but that may be countered by habitat degradation, and competition from introduced species.
