The introduction of the brown trout has had devastating impact on the western fisheries - it was the carrier of Whirling Disease to the US. Even when the intentions might seem "good" to some, it's always risky to forsake the native species for some perceived reason.

Perhaps stiffer laws would help? Regs on pet stores, etc?
