High Salmon Returns in Atlantic Canada in 2010

Researchers and volunteers, working to restore the West River, Sheet Harbour from the impacts of acid rain, are seeing improvements in the river. For more information, listen to this CBC Radio interview with ASF’s Lewis Hinks about this restoration project.

Check out the counts in Newfoundland and the Maritimes. Early reports indicate good runs.

ASF and other partners are working to convince the International Joint Commission, which deals with U.S.-Canadian border issues, that alewives should be given access to ancestral spawning areas in the St. Croix River. More on this debate can be found in this Bangor Daily News article----
