The potential for nongame fish species to explode with detrimental effects on sport fisheries in Utah has prompted managers to shift some stocking programs from exclusively rainbow trout, to include tiger trout and/or Bear Lake cutthroat trout as potential biological controls. However, inter-specific interactions among this unusual complex of predatory species are not well understood, and there is concern that the overall effect may be a decrease of overall trout condition. In Scofield Reservoir rainbow trout niche space overlaps substantially with Utah chub (nongame), indicating a similar trophic position. Large tiger trout and cutthroat trout occupy top trophic positions indicating considerable niche overlap and possibly direct competition for food and space. To evaluate the potential for negative interactions among these three species, we designed laboratory experiments to assess agonistic behavior. Differences in agonistic behavior between rainbow, cutthroat, and tiger trout were determined with replicated, pair-wise treatments of one fish of each species together in a tank. We then observed the number of chases and contacts occurring between species. In all treatments rainbow trout initiated significantly (p <<0.000) more aggressive interactions (primarily chases) than tiger or cutthroat trout. Feeding (pre-post) did not have a significant effect on agonistic behavior for any species; however relative differences in fish size did appear to influence the outcome of the interaction for tiger trout. Understanding agonistic behavior provides important information for determining niche overlap between, and resource availability for, these sympatrically stocked species.
