Project Description: Application of the pesticide Prenfish Toxicant" (Active Ingredient: 5% Rotenone) to remove non-native golden shiners from Long Pond, a lake in the Debar Wild Forest. The lake will be stocked to establish a native brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) population upon natural degradation of the toxicant. This will be the second reclamation of Long Pond, with a previous reclamation undertaken in 1965. The project complies with the Guidelines for Fisheries Management in Wilderness, Primitive, and Canoe Areas (Adopted by the Adirondack Park Agency on April 26, 1990 and Amended on July 10, 1992).
