The article discusses the efforts of biologists to restore the frost fish or whitefish in the Adirondacks in New York. The fish had once been found in Adirondack lakes, but by 2006 was only known to exist in seven of these historical waters. According to the article, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is directing federal funds called State Wildlife Grants to Cornell University to identify factors that have contributed to the decline of frost fish and to study this fish to better understand its needs.
