Wild salmon stocks hit 'lowest level' on record after disastrous season on Scotland's prime rivers


Quotealmon catches on Scotland's rivers fell to their lowest level since records began last year, sparking calls for the preservation of the species to become a national priority.

Fisheries Management Scotland said official figures to be released by the Scottish Government on Wednesday would confirm that Atlantic salmon are at a "crisis point".

Rod and line catches are believed to have been lower than since records began in 1952, after a disastrous year on famous rivers, including the Tay, the Tweed and the Spey.

Alan Wells, chief executive of FMS, which represents the country's district salmon fishery boards, said: "Figures for 2018, taken together with those of recent years, confirm this iconic species is now approaching crisis point.

After 65 Years, Salmon Are Returning to the San Joaquin


QuoteFRESNO, Calif. (CN) - Surviving an exhaustive maze of manmade barriers and hungry predators, a hardy group of salmon have beat the odds and returned to spawn in one of California's most-heavily dammed rivers.


The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation says for the first time in over 65 years, threatened spring-run Chinook adult salmon have returned to the San Joaquin River near Fresno to complete their life cycle. The return of the hatchery-reared fish marks a huge milestone for a billion-dollar undertaking to revive an ancient population of salmon that disappeared in the 1940s with the opening of Friant Dam.

Snake River Dam Removal: Idaho Congressman Makes the Case to Save Salmon
Is the Snake River ready for a radical change? Removing four dams could be the key to bringing salmon numbers back up.

QuoteAt a recent conference in Boise, Republican Congressman Mike Simpson of Idaho raised the idea of removing four federal dams on the Snake River, saying bold actions may be needed to reverse the decades-long decline of steelhead and salmon in the Columbia River Basin.

"We need to stop thinking about what currently exists and ask ourselves, 'What do we want the Northwest to look like in 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 years?'" Simpson tells a crowd at the Andrus Center this week.

The statement is striking because it is the first time that high-level Idaho leaders have said what fish biologists and advocates have been saying for years: Perhaps the last chance to stave off extinction of these treasured fish runs is to let the lower Snake River run free.

Salmon-eating sea lions targeted at Columbia River dam
Salmon and steelhead congregate near the bottom of Bonneville Dam to go up fish ladders, facing some delays in "getting through the pinch points, and sea lions have figured that out."

Breaching dams for Idaho salmon?
Congressman Mike Simpson says it is a real possibility


Quote"The fisheries are down, the spawning counts are down, the return to the hatcheries are down," said retired Fisheries Biologist Jim Martin. "We haven't seen runs this dismal in probably twenty five, thirty years."
