stern Pennsylvania and by 2004 the agency had released 153 in the state. The re introduction effort combined with improving water quality allowed river otters to rebound, according to PGC furbearer biologist Tom Hardisky. Hardisky pointed to a pair of surveys the agency conducted to gauge river otter numbers. In 1995, a survey of all Wildlife Conservation Officers found that otters inhabited 49 percent of the state. Today, that figure is 89 percent. a big success, Hardisky said. though we always had river otters, they were concentrated in the Poconos. That was the only population we had left for a time.

For years trappers in New York and New Jersey were able to trap otters on their side of the river and we couldn here. Wenner, a biologist with the PGC Northeast Region Office, said river otters are continuing to expand into new areas and, based on the available habitat in the region, there is still room to grow. of our drainages in the region have established otter populations, and as those animals travel up and down the rivers they continue to expand into new areas, Wenner said. The proposed river otter season is the latest in a string of new trapping seasons realized by rebounding furbearer populations. In 2000, the PGC established a bobcat season, and in a fisher trapping season was implemented in 2010 both seasons were based on significant population increases for both animals.

Hardisky said if the season is approved, the agency will look at several factors to gauge the populations density of harvest, reproduction and litter size, and the rate of accidental captures. otter population has rebounded, but we still going to regulate the trapping season with a short length and a quota that will stop the season if its met early, Hardisky said. trying to be very conservative.
