Maine fisheries biologist Fred Kircheis, the “charr man,” died on Feb. 27 at his home in Carmel. He was 81.

Kircheis will be remembered as a consummate, dedicated fisheries biologist, who devoted most of his working life to the restoration and protection of Maine’s rare Arctic charr.

Maine has the only intact native population of Arctic charr in the lower 48 states, according to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
