The sad fate of the Vosso salmon...

I don't remember if it was Oglesby or Falkus that made the Vosso river in western Norway famous for it's big salmon. These days, however, there is hardly anything left. Hydroelectric power plants, roads and more lately fish farming, has made this great river more or less devoid of the original salmon that used to run it's waters. You can read more about it at the site of Norwegian Salmon, then go and mourn man's short sighted actions and what is probably the loss of a truly unique strain of Atlantic salmon
