"I was suprised that in 2001 that there was no scientific evidence that loggin had an impact and was surely grateful that these folks were "looking into thing"

The people you talk about were probably the biologists from the CIRSA (Atlantic Salmon Inter University Research Center). Their study showed evidencies of production impact , mostly related to tributaries lost of habitat (dry section not produce any parr). The Patapedia and the Kedgwick lived that at the beginning of '80s, now on recovery since the forest come back.

Other issue; a friend of mine working at the power dam in Rimouski mentionned a very hard winter with "frozil" (don't know the term in english) . He expected a big impact on the parr and smolt production due to these extreme conditions.

'Frozil' might be referring to anchor ice on the river bed.

Having previously only driven into Gaspe via various routes, I saw some of the destruction - bare hillsides, Murdochville, etc, but only last year when I flew in and out on clear days did I really get an appreciation for how bad the situation is. Gaspe is as despoiled as any part of Quebec that I've seen save for a few nasty mining towns like Schefferville.

Incredibly sad, and defefinitely has to be a contributing factor to the lack of recovery in runs since the netting buy-out. For sure there are other factors, but they alll add up.

Hi!

Pierre mean frazil ice. Frazil ice is a collection of loose, randomly oriented needle-shaped ice crystals in water. It resembles slush and has the appearance of being slightly oily when seen on the surface of water.
