Theodore Lyman, III, found with Louis Agassiz (1867) that Red Brook in Wareham was the finest remaining salter run. The Lyman family saved the brook’s watershed until recently. It is protected today by the State (428-acre Red Brook Wildlife Management Unit) and The Trustees of Reservation (210-acre Lyman Reserve). Salter populations are hanging on in tidal creeks and rivers, a remnant of their former abundance. Saving sea-run brook trout means saving all the other fish and animals of the watershed.
