What Impact of Endangered listing for Penobscot salmon?

Atlantic salmon in the Penobscot, Kennebec and Androscoggin rivers received Endangered Species Listing last week by U.S. Federal authorities. There are many important aspects of this decision for readers - Check them out at www.asf.ca - Among them:

NOAA's Press Release:

The Atlantic Salmon Federation's reaction to the endangered listing regrets the impact this will have on anglers:

In the Boston Globe:

An editorial on the need for protection, in Maine's Morning Sentinel:

To check out the FEDERAL REGISTER's actual wording, go to the Endangered Issue page of ASF: http://asf.ca/issues.php?id=2

This is interesting, not because "endangered status" has finally been enacted, but because the "Federation" still opposes it. They opposed it in the mid '90's when it should have been enacted for the survival of the species in Maine. "Salmon Clubs" are not what we're trying to save here!! It's Atlantic Salmon in the State of Maine! Many talk about saving the species for future generations but they don't want it to start NOW!! Threatened status has proven to be not good enough.

Let's hope that it isn't too late.

I think that the ASF was trying to keep fishermen on the river. Poaching tends to be a lot lower when there are people fishing. Sometimes no fishing translates to no fish.

If no one is fishing for them, interest will drop. C&R fishing should part of the solution. It keeps people on the river, involved in the sport, and involved in the active restoration process. Once no one can fish, no one will care if they come back. Just my thoughts, what do you think?
