PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The federal government is conducting a review of four dams on a Maine river that could result in a lifeline for the last wild Atlantic salmon in the US.

The wild salmon have been listed under the Endangered Species Act since 2000.

One of the rivers is the Kennebec River, where Brookfield Renewable U.S. owns dams.

Brookfield wants to amend federal licenses for four dams and receive a new operating license for one of them.

Bristol Bay run hits all-time record of 76 million sockeye

>>>The sockeye salmon run in Bristol Bay, Alaska, U.S.A. has surpassed 76 million fish, setting an all-time record.

As of 21 July, the latest day for which a count is available, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game reported a total run of 76,583,856 sockeye, with a cumulative catch of 58,298,771 sockeye between Bristol Bay's Ugashik, Egegik, Naknek-Kvichak, Nushagak, and Togiak fisheries. The count  surpassed AFDG's pre-season estimate predicted a run of 73.4 million sockeye salmon, the largest inshore run ever, with a potential harvest of over 61 million salmon.

The sockeye catch is up 36 percent year-over-year compared the same period of 2021, with 95 percent of the expected sockeye catch already brought in.

The Pacific Salmon Explorer has become an important tool for supporting salmon conservation and recovery. For example, the Pacific Salmon Explorer is being used to support Recovery Potential Assessments (RPAs) for salmon assessed as threated or endangered by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada.

Trucks dump rocks into American River to help with salmon spawning


Work has begun this week to provide and protect critical habitat for salmon in Northern California.

Trucks were seen dumping rocks in the American River by Sailor Bar, which is downstream from Nimbus Dam near Folsom. The process involves first dumping the rocks, which are deposited into the river.
