The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced the Bonneville cutthroat trout has been removed from the Endangered Species Act.
A viable population exists and is widely distributed through its historic range, officials said.
The fish, a cutthroat trout subspecies, is found mostly in Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Nevada.
Ralph Morgenweck, regional director of the Fish and Wildlife Service, credited federal, state and tribal agencies for conserving the Bonneville cutthroat trout.
