Back in Bass

Two years ago, biologists "reclaimed" Maine's Durepo Lake from introduced populations of largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) [translation: they poisoned the lake, killing all fish]. So you can imagine their outrage at the recent discovery of introduced smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieu) in the same lake. According to this report from the Bangor Daily News, at least 3 of the fish have been found so far. It is illegal to introduce any fish into any body of water in the state of Maine.
