Feed starving whales farmed salmon, say scientists
Radical idea that led to an orphaned orca being returned to the wild could help endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales.

Last significant population of wild Atlantic salmon swim the Saco River

QuoteThere are three significant species of fish that migrate up the Saco River in the spring. Atlantic salmon, river herring, and American shad all migrate upriver as adults to spawn in the same stream where they were born.

Many migratory fish species are critically endangered or threatened. Significant causes are man-made barriers, such as dams or sluices or power generation facilities, which disrupt the natural flow of rivers and modify or prevent their usual migratory routes. Pollution, especially prior to the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts of the 1970s, was also a significant driver that led to endangering and threatening these species. It's important to keep our river clean.

In fact, the last significant remaining wild Atlantic salmon populations in the United States are found only in Maine. In order to address this challenge of making hydropower while allowing safe fish passage, a variety of methods to ease fish migration upstream
have been developed.[quo

An Atlantic salmon returned to the Penobscot in May. Here's what this rare occurrence means.

>>>Atlantic salmon are returning to the Penobscot River at a steady pace thus far. Fisheries staffers from the Maine Department of Marine Resources said the 176 salmon that have been counted thus far are the fifth most to have reached the counting facility by May 29 in the 42 years that salmon have been counted on the river.

Among those fish was a rarity: A male that was making a return trip to the river to spawn.
