Devastating to read...

Upon reading the link, I had another even more stark revelation:

the name "Salmon River" did not come from introduced pacific salmon... but from it's unimaginably prolific atlantic salmon population before we 'played God' and destroyed it.

As sad as any American salmon disaster story I've ever read.

Thanks for sharing your retrospective of the plight of the Merrimac salmon and I admire your passion. I agree that the Pemi is as beautiful a river as one can imagine and a lost AS gem.
