    Proliferative Kidney Disease (PKD) is one of the most serious diseases to impact whitefish and trout and can be spread by transfers of mud, vegetation and water.

    It is caused by a microscopic parasite which moves through the gills to the kidneys and spleen, ultimately causing death.

    From your link.

    “It’s not unknown for PKD to kill up to 90 percent of a population,” said Jack Williams, senior scientist at Trout Unlimited. “With climate change we will see more low flows and warm temperatures, making disease problems worse.”
    Low water flows and warm temperatures created a perfect storm for PKD. The Yellowstone is the lowest it has been since 1919, less than half of it’s normal flow this time of year. Water temperatures at Livingston have hovered around 70 degrees and fish are crowded in less space, a perfect storm to spread disease.

    I just spoke with a fisheries biologist from Montana yesterday......he said this is getting worse because the snow pack is melting faster now....the water is getting warm because there is no more snow to melt in the summer months..it is too warm, no more trickle of cold water from the mountains..it is a torrent in the spring then nothing in the summer.....so Global warming, climate change, or doesn't exist, depending n your political view...
