>>>Outdoor journalist Kris Millgate spent a decade in TV news before starting her own production company, Tight Line Media, in 2006. With a quarter century of multimedia storytelling, Millgate traverses the country in search of dynamic topics, researching issues thoroughly then translating core elements via video, photo and words with credibility.

Her latest project is an immersive experience which will keep her on the roads, and streams, of the Pacific Northwest all summer long.

"Ocean to Idaho" debuts on social media platforms this summer. The multimedia experience offers audiences the opportunity to track the journey of migrating salmon from — as the title implies — the Pacific Ocean to the Salmon River in central Idaho, an 1,368-kilometre journey.

Warm water doesn't deter Atlantic salmon as Penobscot count tops 1,300

>>>The water in the Penobscot River has been about 80 degrees Fahrenheit for the past few weeks — a level that's less than optimal for Atlantic salmon — but the run of migrating fish is still the best in nine years, with 1,369 salmon being counted as of Monday, July 13.

Over the past two weeks, despite those warm water temperatures, 329 salmon have been counted according to Jason Valliere, a marine resource scientist for the Maine Department of Marine Resources' Division of Sea Run Fisheries and Habitat. That's an average of 15.6 fish per day.

How climate change is leading to 'a redistribution of life on Earth'

Scientists say more than 12,000 species experiencing 'range shift'

acific salmon used to be so unfamiliar in Arctic waters that many communities don't have local words for the fish, and there are stories of harvesters feeding them to their dogs.

But in recent years, chum, pink and sockeye salmon have been showing up in so many fishing nets that Fisheries and Oceans Canada has been keeping track.

Michelle Gruben works at the Hunters and Trappers Committee (HTC) in Aklavik, N.W.T., a small community near the Mackenzie delta on the Beaufort Sea, collecting salmon from harvesters in order to pass them on to scientists with the Arctic Salmon project.

Debate surrounding hydroelectric dam continues in N.B.

>>>HALIFAX -- There is renewed debate concerning the future of Canada's oldest hydroelectric dam. While environmental groups are calling for the removal of the Milltown Dam in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, others say the facility is an important part of the economic and social fabric of the international border area.

Community leaders say the Milltown Dam, which sits alongside the St. Croix River, straddling New Brunswick and Maine, has been an integral piece of the border region since the 1800's when it began generating electricity.

"Well, it just started the community," says St. Stephen Mayor Allan MacEachern. "The town just built around that dam. It provided a service for the community, and it grew from there."

Eavesdropping on trout building their nests
Seismic sensors can record signals produced by fish building spawning pits


Steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) stir up the sediment of the river bed when building their spawning pits, thus influencing the composition of the river bed and the transport of sediment. Until now, this process could only be studied visually, irregularly and with great effort in the natural environment of the fish. Now, researchers led by Michael Dietze of the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam have used seismic sensors (geophones) to analyze the trout's nest-building process in detail. The study was published in the journal Earth Surface Processes and Landforms.

>>>A Native American tribe has reclaimed a small part of ancestral lands on California's Big Sur coast that were lost to Spanish colonial settlement nearly 250 years ago. The Mercury News reports the Esselen Tribe of Monterey County closed escrow on 1,199 acres about 5 miles inland from the ocean that was part of a $4.5 million deal involving the state and the Western Rivers Conservancy. It marks the first restoration of any lands to the tribe, which lost 90% of its approximately 1,000 members to disease and other causes by the early 1800s. The land encompasses old-growth redwoods, oak woodlands, meadows and endangered steelhead trout.

The Old Man and the New Sea
Three generations of the Hamada family have fished British Columbia's coast. Will the latest generation outlive the salmon they seek?


>>>s her fisher husband, Satoshi, bustled around their small apartment preparing to leave for the dock, June Hamada knew she was about to give birth to her first child. But on that warm July morning in 1965 she kept her contractions to herself.

It was, after all, a Monday.

After a Fraser River commercial fishery has been closed for multiple days, the first set opens on Monday at 8:00, says Satoshi. "That's the most important set. The first set is always a lot of fish."

"I knew there was a major catch that day," says June, "so, I really didn't want to stop him."

She waited for her husband to leave their home in Marpole—a neighborhood of Vancouver, British Columbia, just blocks from the Fraser River—before calling her brother to take her to the hospital.

Atlantic Salmon returning to Maine river after dam removals


>>>Atlantic Salmon are returning to the Penobscot river in the US state of Maine after the administration removed several dams on the river's watershed and made other improvements for the fishes' passage.

A total of 1,426 Atlantic Salmon returned to the river this year to spawn, Maine's Department of Marine Resources reported July 28, 2020, according to a report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's fisheries wing.

This figure is higher when compared to the 1,076 fishes that returned in 2019 and 248 that returned in 2014.

The administration has removed 15 dams in the river's watershed since 2010, including two large ones on the river itself.

>>>The king of fish, the sleek and silvery wild Atlantic salmon, is under threat from a mystery skin condition which has baffled scientists.

Salmon displaying signs of an unusual red skin disease have been found in Scottish rivers, sparking fears over how it might impact on wild stocks affected by years of significant decline.

A call has now gone out to Scottish anglers to help identify cases of the condition and to pass on details of affected fish to authorities in the hope that a cause can be found.

New fish trap on White River can handle 1 million salmon a year, biggest facility in nation

>>>WHITE RIVER — They were impaled and exhausted, weakened, or left dying in waves: pink salmon by the thousands, defeated by a nearly 80-year-old fish trap and dam on this waterway that also harmed spring chinook, the prize diet of endangered southern resident killer whales.

But no more. At the insistence of tribes and federal fisheries managers, the Army Corps of Engineers will soon complete the biggest facility of its kind in North America, to capture and transport salmon to free flowing stretches of the White River, a tributary of the Puyallup.

Big as an aircraft carrier and made of enough concrete to pave a mile and a quarter of Interstate 5, the White River Fish Passage Facility is expected to be completed in October. The $131 million facility includes a complex of gates, chutes, a fish ladder and even a pair of gleaming stainless steel augers pretty as an art piece, custom-made by J. Nelson Enterprises metalworks in Orting. The augers will lift fish into flumes that carry them to trucks for the 12-mile ride from the fish collection facility at Buckley, where they will be released back to the river above Mud Mountain Dam near Enumclaw, to spawn.

Washington fish trap opens on White River in October, will be largest in U.S.



>>>The augers at the facility will lift fish into flumes that carry them to trucks for a 12-mile drive up the river, where they will be released back to the river to spawn. It will be located near the Mud Mountain Dam along the White River in Pierce County.

The 400-foot dam was built in 1948 to prevent flooding to the roughly 400,000 houses and businesses along the White and Puyallup river valleys in western Washington. Adult fish are unable to penetrate the dam, which requires officials to physically move them in order to maintain the ecology.

First sockeye of 2020 arrives at the Sawtooth Basin, run likely larger than last year

>>>STANLEY — The first sockeye of 2020, a naturally produced female, returned July 31 to Redfish Lake Creek trap near Stanley, and a second arrived Aug. 2. The two are among the 412 sockeye that crossed Lower Granite Dam through Aug. 2 and signals a substantially larger return to Idaho than last year.

This year's sockeye return appears to be slightly later than usual, and fishery managers expect more fish will cross Lower Granite, which is the last dam the fish cross before reaching Idaho. Based on historical conversion rates between Lower Granite and the Sawtooth Basin, if no more fish crossed the dam, about 124 to 165 sockeye would return to the basin this year and likely surpass the last two year's returns.
