Penobscot River Atlantic salmon return reaches highest level since 2011

QuoteThe Penobscot River is enjoying its most productive Atlantic salmon run in the past decade.

As of Tuesday, 855 salmon had been trapped or counted at the Milford Dam, with another 35 fish trapped on the Stillwater Branch of the river, according to fisheries scientist Jason Valliere of the Maine Department of Marine Resources.

Three quarters of Fraser sockeye face bottleneck due to rock slide

A system of pressurized tubes known as a "salmon cannon" is among the options being considered to help fish trapped by a rock slide in the Fraser River.

Hydropower without hurting fish runs gets a test

QuoteA Maine company called Ocean renewable Power Co. says its in-river turbines, which look sort of like egg beaters with the axis perpendicular to the river flow, can produce hydropower without requiring dams or interfering with fish runs.

The system will get a test in a tiny Alaska village that's tired of burning diesel for generators but doesn't want to harm the Pacific salmon that go up and down the river in their weird life cycle.

Patagonia's movie, "Artifishal," gets a negative review....


Hatchery movie misguided, inaccurate


QuoteNorthwest Indian Fisheries Commission
Outdoor clothing and gear manufacturer Patagonia recently released "Artifishal," a misguided documentary full of misinformation about the role hatcheries play in salmon recovery.

The movie claims that salmon hatcheries are the main cause for the decline of salmon and should be eliminated. But it doesn't present accurate science to back this up.

What we know for certain is that eliminating hatcheries would be the end of salmon fishing for generations. More than half of all the salmon harvested in Western Washington come from hatcheries.

Quotehe confirmed sighting of an invasive fish in the southwest Miramichi River last week lends urgency to plans to eradicate smallmouth bass from a nearby lake.
In 2008, Miramichi Lake was found to contain the bass, which were likely introduced there illegally.

In the 11 years since, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and a number of community conservation groups have operated a program using nets, electrofishing and other methods to prevent the fish from getting out of the 200-hectare lake and into the nearby Miramichi River, where they can do irreparable damage to native wild Atlantic salmon populations.
Over that same period, groups like the Miramichi Salmon Association and the Atlantic Salmon Federation have repeatedly called for a program to eradicate smallmouth bass in the lake by treating it with rotenone, a powdered product made from the dried root of certain bean plants.

"In the never-ending pursuit to drum up alarm over 'Russian' threats, the British press has turned to reporting on an 'invasion' of pink salmon, after about 10 or so of the fish were spotted in UK waters this year.
"An invasive breed of salmon, from Russia, is colonising Britain's rivers and lakes," the Daily Mail declared on Friday, earning a raised eyebrow from the Russian Embassy in London.

"That awkward moment when all other Russian threat theories have failed miserably," the embassy tweeted, with a photo of the Mail's headline.

The Mail did note that the salmon are actually native to Alaska and Canada - wouldn't that make them "American" invaders? - but ended up in Russian rivers in the 1960s, and eventually reached the British isles via Norway.

Seven salmon were recorded in 2017 in the waters of the Coquet, Frome, Hampshire Avon, Humber, Solway, Tyne and Wear, according to the paper. As the Pacific pink salmon has a two-year life cycle, the UK authorities have been on the lookout for them this year, spotting ten so far - including one in Wales and three in Scotland."
