Whirling Disease

Per the previous thread about White Pond a discussion about the introduction of Brown Trout and Whirling disease prompted me to find this:

<b>What can you do the help fight WD?</b>
<i> The obvious thing is to avoid becoming a transmission agent yourself. Waders should be thoroughly washed after fishing in WD-positive waters, to prevent spreading the parasite's spores on your next fishing trip. Also, do not transport live or dead fish from one river to another. Becoming involved in conservation organizations such as Trout Unlimited can open opportunities to action on a larger scale. One volunteer group in Colorado helped collect eggs from wild rainbows in the Colorado River, so they could be raised in a WD-free environment.</i>
