Can life survive in the Animas River?

Fish controls show promising results early on
Stephanie Schuler, front, and Steve McClung, middle, of Colorado Parks & Wildlife, and Mike Japhet, a retired aquatic biologist with Colorado Parks & Wildlife, check fish cages Friday afternoon on the Animas River. At that time, spokesman Joe Lewandowski said of 108 rainbow trout fingerlings in cages placed in three separate areas in the river, only one had died so far. A fourth cage was placed elsewhere as a control subject.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Joe Lewandowski said the agency is checking fish cages in three different locations on the Animas River several times a day to determine how the metals in the river are affecting them.
