A 2019 international symposium titled “Advances in the Population Ecology of Stream Salmonids V” held in Granada, Spain (http://www.salmonidsymposium.es), included a special session entitled, “The Status and Conservation of Trout and Char Worldwide.” The session was followed by an interactive forum for attendees to identify and synthesise issues associated with threats, status and solutions for the sustainability of native trout at local to global scales. The widespread peril of trout inspired an immediate call to action from the scientific community, resource stewards, government regulators and native trout advocates in attendance. Our goal is to ensure that these species and their supporting ecosystems will not merely persist as rare curiosities in far‐off places accessible only to scientists and elite anglers, but rather thrive as viable parts of functioning ecosystems. As such, attendees rallied to seek solutions and to introduce a new impetus to raise the global awareness of these iconic fishes and protect, conserve and restore trout and their habitats.
