The true Dolly Varden, Salvelinus malma (not shown), looks nearly identical but is limited to coastal waters from Puget Sound to Alaska.
An important effort was also made, with the help of funds from the Territorial Legislature, to eliminate large numbers of Dolly Varden trout, Salvelinus malma, which shared the rivers with the salmon and fed voraciously on salmon spawn and fingerlings (Bureau of Fisheries, 1913, 1919, 1939).
