On the Fly
The Inner Bay of Fundy population of the Atlantic Salmon was listed as endangered under the Species at Risk Act in June 2003. Adult numbers were then estimated to have declined by more than 95% in the previous 30 years, and most rivers didn’t have either adults or juveniles. Historical threats included loss and degradation of habitat that was attributable to the construction of barriers to migration and logging. Contemporary threats may include interbreeding with escaped farmed fish and environmental change like warmer temperatures & contaminants. There is reassuring news about the comeback of the Atlantic Salmon in this region. Sport fishing is allowed with a license BUT it is strictly catch and immediately release.
