Yeah, I was guessing there must be some other transport mechanism.

I thought I had heard people claim that fish (brook trout in particular) populated the Adirondacks as the glaciers receded by following the melt pathways and new formations of ponds/lakes, and that those populations had been there since then. But reading other information, that tends to make more sense to me, leads me to believe this to be rather improbable that those original populations could have survived until relatively recently considering eutrophication and freezing of small water bodies.

I'm not sure I'm interested in the details of the forefront of the debate, just rather what is being investigated. I'm not near well versed enough on any of this to have any sort of real opinions.
