There's some encouraging news this evening about salmon stocks on the west coast.

A record number of wild atlantic salmon have been recorded at a counting station in Corner Brook – which indicates conservation is working.

Back in scotland...

>>> WORK has started to install fish passes on two weirs in Leeds, as part of a multi-million pound project to enable salmon to swim up the River Aire for the first time in 150 years.

Contractors for the Environment Agency have moved on-site at Armley and Newley weirs on the River Aire.

Work on fish passes at Saltaire and Kirkstall weirs is almost complete. These four fish passes, along with a three-year community engagement programme, together make up the Developing the Natural Aire (DNAire) project.

Wild Salmon Returning in "Record" Numbers - But Expert Urges Caution




>>>Wild Atlantic salmon are returning in "record" numbers to rivers along the Atlantic seaboard, according to fishery managers.

As The Sunday Times reports, Inland Fisheries Ireland regional director Francis O'Donnell says this year's season appears to have "bucked the trend".

Mr O'Donnell, who has responsibility for the western river basin district, said there were high numbers of healthy fish on Galway's Corrib system, Mayo's River Moy and Ballisodare in Sligo

IFI is deploying extra patrols to detect poaching, and inspecting premises ashore, he said. Fish are believed to be fetching between 50 euro and 90 euro per salmon.

Bears alert scientists to secret salmon streams

>>>Right now, on the brushy tundra of northern Alaska, grizzly bears are gathering at quiet streams and rivers, attracted by the largest calorie reward they can find — spawning salmon.

Until recently, scientists did not know salmon swam up some of these waterways, nor that grizzlies were fattening up on them before entering hibernation.

B.C. Wildlife Federation fights back over Thompson steelhead populations


>>>A member of the B.C. Wildlife Federation is criticizing the lack of transparency with Fisheries and Oceans Canada as endangered steelhead populations in the Thompson and Chilcotin Rivers continue to decline.

Jesse Zeman, director of fish and wildlife restoration with the conservation organization, addressed a House of Commons standing committee on Fisheries and Oceans, online, July 23. The video has since been shared on the federation's Facebook page.

Zeman outlined that Thompson and Chilcotin steelhead populations have been in decline since the 1990s which he said is due to the fish being caught in nets intended for pink and chum salmon. At that time, there were around 3,000 to 4,000 spawners, he said. There were 62 Thompson and 134 Chilcotin fish counted this year, he told the committee.

Alaska's salmon are getting smaller, affecting people and ecosystems

>>>For years, people in Alaska have been noticing that wild salmon were getting smaller, but the reasons have been unclear. In the new study, published August 19 in Nature Communications, researchers compiled and analyzed data collected over six decades (1957 to 2018) from 12.5 million fish by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. This unprecedented dataset enabled them to see patterns of body size changes for four species of salmon—Chinook, chum, coho, and sockeye—across all regions of Alaska.

A Glimmer Of Hope

>>>A recent study by scientists from the Woods Hole Fisheries Center has given a glimmer of hope for the survival of Atlantic salmon. Julie Nieland of the Woods Hole Center and Tim Sheehan found that if salmon can get past dams, they not only get to spawning grounds but they also have access to higher-quality habitat and therefore produce more young, or smolts. In other words, the farther salmon are able to run into a watershed, the more prolific they are.

Thousands of deformed escapee salmon could be in any Ayrshire river


>>>It is reported that three cages holding as many as 165,000 fish ruptured off the coast of Arran yesterday.

Fisheries Management Scotland, the representative body for Scotland's District Salmon Fishery Boards and Fisheries Trusts, said they anticipated that a 'significant numbers of adult' salmon may have escaped.

Anglers across Ayrshire have been warned to report any obviously farmed salmon to the Ayrshire Rivers Trust.


The farmed fish are identifiable because of deformed or shortened features such as their fins, gill covers and snouts

Salmon loss fear at farm after storm




>>>Stormy weather has caused anchors at a salmon farm to break free from the seabed.

The site is estimated to contain 500,000 fish and pictures which emerged yesterday suggest at least three of the ten pens were damaged.

He said: "For wild Scottish Atlantic salmon on the west coast of Scotland this is the ecological equivalent of an oil tanker running aground.".

FYI

>>Around 4.7 million fish have escaped from Chilean salmon farms in 73 incidents between 2010 and 2020, according to a report from state aquaculture agency, Sernapesca.

Joy riders 'threaten' salmon, call goes out to ban jet boats on upper Pitt River
Concerns have been raised about the potential for damage to sensitive salmon habitat north of Coquitlam, but DFO enforcement manager says he has to catch jetboaters in the act



>>>She's added her voice to concerns raised by Dan Gerak, who owns the Pitt River Lodge and guides recreational fishermen on the upper Pitt River. Both have tried to get politicians, media, Department of Fisheries and Transport Canada to take note of what they see is a growing problem of jet boaters speeding in shallow waters.

Gerak told the Tri-City News he's getting increasingly frustrated with jet boaters who he says get too close to the gravel areas where the eggs are laid, and the pressure from the jet engine "kills off the eggs," They could be responsible for killing juvenile smolts by their wash.

Their concerns have been brought to the attention of Art Demsky, detachment commander of the DFO Conservation and Protection Branch in Langley.

Demsky, whose officers make patrols via helicopter and boat, looking for people who don't release the fish they catch, said he is aware of the issue.

Steelhead Rescue mission


>>>Biologist Ryan Battleson bounds down the slippery bedrock of the East Fork of Evans Creek on a rescue mission for which steelhead anglers four years from now may thank him.

Armed with a net and a plastic bucket, Battleson stops at a small, isolated pool where infant wild steelhead and even threatened coho salmon are likely trapped, unable to fin either upstream to cooler confines or downstream to better flows.

"We have tons of these isolated pools that probably won't make it to the end of the week," says Battleson, from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. "There's steelhead in there, and they're not getting out of here on their own."

Battleson runs the light-mesh net through the pool and, sure enough, he captures a handful of steelhead not quite two inches long.

"Let's get them out of here and get them somewhere where they can make it through the summer," he says.

Yep. Fish farming is the future, and many recreational groups have been convinced to support it under the guise of protecting wild populations, when in fact it will likely lead to the demise of wild strains in many instances.
