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.

Thousands of young Atlantic Salmon released into Piscataquis River in Maine

The state of Maine has invested tens of millions of dollars into restoring riverways and the wildlife that populate and rely on them.

Wednesday, when thousands of young Atlantic Salmon were released into the Piscataquis River, it was seen as an investment in the future.

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."

Maine's Atlantic salmon prognosis remains grim despite all-time low harvest and more adult returns to North American rivers


https://www.sentinelsource.com/news/national_world/maine-s-atlantic-salmon-prognosis-remains-grim-despite-all-time/article_65a41383-fc33-5285-9a61-c8007db17468.html

QuoteAccording to that report, salmon returns to U.S. rivers in 2018 met only 3 percent of the conservation limit for fish that had spent two winters at sea. And what's a "conservation limit?" That's defined as the number of spawning adults below which populations are unable to sustain themselves, and begin to decline.

And that pretty much defines the Atlantic salmon situation here in Maine; the fish is listed under the federal Endangered Species Act. Fishing for Atlantic salmon here is not allowed, and the population that does exist is almost entirely dependent on the annual stocking of hundreds of thousands of hatchery fish.
In 2018, according to the ASF, the Penobscot had 480 large salmon and 289 small salmon return. That run of 769 fish was lower than 2017's 849 returning salmon.

And despite those numbers, the Penobscot is still the crown jewel among U.S. salmon rivers. In the nearby Kennebec, just 11 fish returned in 2018 (compared to 38 in 2017). On the Narraguagus River, fortunes were better, with 42 salmon returning last year, nearly doubling the total from 2017.

For Chinook salmon, the urge to return home and spawn isn't just strong--it's imperative. And for the first time in more than 65 years, at least 23 fish that migrated as juveniles from California's San Joaquin River and into the Pacific Ocean have heeded that call and returned as adults during the annual spring run.

Hope you like to eat jellyfish, because they're taking over the oceans

Quote from: undefinedSalmon farmers in Northern Ireland could only stand aghast one autumn morning as they watched their entire stock--100,000 plump Atlantic salmon--wipe out within hours.

The Irish Sea water glowed red that day in 2007 with what the farmers described as "billions" of jellyfish, engulfing a space of 10 square meters, 35 feet deep. The farm's boats practically jammed as they tried to trudge through the throng of unwelcome intruders. Over the following hours, the entire inventory of Northern Ireland's then-only salmon farm, $2 million worth of fish, was obliterated. Some died of stress, many suffocated under the pressure of the battling boats, and the rest were stung to death.

The "mauve stingers," a species native to the warm Mediterranean Sea, weren't supposed to exist at all in the colder British waters, but they followed a now-recurrent pattern--slippery, alien-like blobs without brains, hearts, or blood suddenly mushrooming in population and overrunning the Earth's waters.
