Salmon find their way home to P.E.I. river

>>>After decades of absence, Atlantic Salmon are back in the Miminegash River.

Danny Murphy is the co-ordinator for the Roseville/ Miminegash Watersheds Inc., a non-profit group that takes care of some of the rivers and streams in western P.E.I.

Murphy has volunteered with the group since 2007 and has worked as the co-ordinator for the last 12 years. He's also an avid angler. In the fall of 2018, he caught a fish he didn't recognize.

Idaho steelhead run better than last year

>>>In Idaho,steelhead harvest season usually opens Sept. 1 in the Snake and Salmon rivers with a daily harvest of three fish, although restrictive measures over the past few years have shortened seasons and lowered limits.

Restrictions are meant to ensure that enough fish return to hatcheries. In addition Fish and Game monitors the number of wild steelhead in the system.

"This year we are forecasting that around 17,000 wild steelhead will pass over Lower Granite Dam," DuPont said. "Although we would like to see more, this forecast is better than we have seen the previous four years which is a good sign. With this wild steelhead forecast, impacts from our sport fisheries will not be an issue."

Walbridge fire damages half of prime salmon, steelhead spawning grounds, experts say

>>>In burning to the edge of Lake Sonoma, the Walbridge fire has posed an unprecedented threat to the water supply for 600,000 North Bay residents and scorched Sonoma County streams that are critical to the revival of imperiled fish.

Rural residents and environmentalists also are concerned the miles of bulldozer tracks left by firefighters — an essential tool in the ongoing battle against the 55,000-acre fire — could contribute to post-fire erosion, water pollution and possible mudslides when winter rains fall on barren ground.

Experts estimated that half of the spawning habitat on Russian River tributaries has been burned, dealing a potential setback to expensive, longstanding efforts to bolster the coho salmon and steelhead trout populations.

Judge Blames Corps For Pushing Pacific Salmon To 'Brink Of Extinction'


>>>A federal judge, granting summary judgment in favor of a lawsuit filed in 2018 by environmentalists, said the Corps of Engineers is years behind on efforts to mitigate dams and river structures along the Willamette River to aid Upper Willamette River (UWR) Chinook and steelhead salmon, and its failures are pushing them "to the brink of extinction." The judge ordered the Corps to speed up its efforts, but it's not clear what effect the ruling will have. The Corps doesn't comment on ongoing litigation.

Beautiful videos. I particularly like the one entitled "The Last Chase" with the bears and seals munching on the Reds in the lake.

Midcoast Conservancy adds to Whitefield Salmon Preserve

>>>WHITEFIELD MAINE— At the end of August, Midcoast Conservancy purchased a high priority 27.7-acre addition to its Whitefield Salmon Preserve from Ellis Percy and JoAnn Tribby.

"We're very glad to partner with Midcoast Conservancy to protect this land so that both the people and wildlife of Whitefield will be able to continue to enjoy this beautiful place," said Percy, in a news release. "That means a great deal to us."

Part of the property was already in a conservation easement held by Midcoast Conservancy that included much of the 1.7-mile Sheepscot West Branch trail, created and maintained in partnership by the Whitefield Trails Committee.

"We are so glad that Midcoast Conservancy was able to forever protect the entire property containing this lovely trail loop, open to the public for hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing," said David Elliott, of Whitefield Trails Committee.

Valley Water Relocates Threatened Steelhead to Keep Them Safe From Dam Retrofit



>>>When a team of 18 biologists in mid-August rescued threatened Central California Coast steelhead trout in Coyote Creek, the magnitude of the feat wasn't lost on anyone involved.

Least of all on Clayton Leal.

"This was a first-of-its-kind thing .... conducted by Valley Water," the senior water resource specialist told San Jose Inside in a recent interview. "I'm not really familiar with anything else done at this level for any other species. This was a major effort that had consultants involved as well."

Fish in Oregon hatcheries die, including Leaburg, released early as fires rage

>>>About 450,000 fish perished at two hatcheries combined and nearly 1.2 million chinook, steelhead and trout were released into the McKenzie River east of Eugene all at once in desperation as the fire approached and fresh water to the facility was cut off. Other hatcheries lost critical infrastructure, including a hatchery building near the Oregon-California border, and one facility went ahead with a critical breeding period while running on limited power from a back-up generator.

Fears rise for Fraser River salmon after Pier Park fire delivers another blow

>>>There are growing concerns about the environmental fallout from a fire Sunday that destroyed New Westminster's Pier Park.

The fire consumed a six-acre section of the pier spewing toxic smoke into the air for days, choking the skies over the riverfront, putting toxins into the river from creosote infused pilings at the foot of the pier at a key time when salmon are returning to the Fraser River to spawn.

When Jason Hwang first saw the smoke, he says the struggling Fraser River salmon populations were his first thought.

"The [2020] Fraser sockeye return is probably the worst return in modern history," said Hwang, a biologist with the Pacific Salmon Foundation

Researchers Attach Cameras to Pacific Northwest Orcas, Revealing a Marvelous Underwater World


http://www.chronline.com/northwest_regional_news/researchers-attach-cameras-to-pacific-northwest-orcas-revealing-a-marvelous-underwater-world/article_0756816e-fa9e-11ea-992e-4fdaad0a37db.html

>>>For nearly a month the team has been at sea, marveling at the prowess of southern and northern resident killer whales as they follow the orcas' foraging rounds, using a drone and stick-on cameras to record the daily lives of orcas, even underwater.

The surprises keep coming: How far the orcas, especially the southern residents, travel in their hunt for salmon. How affectionate the orca families are with one another, constantly touching. And their incredible athleticism, as orcas hunt down and kill their prey.

"They are really efficient fish slayers," said Andrew Trites, head of the Marine Mammal Research Unit at the University of British Columbia. He is leading this team on a monthlong research trip with eight others packed aboard the Gikumi, a 1954 wooden work boat.

By day 27, the team has tracked the whales from the northernmost end of Vancouver Island to its southern tip; along the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and out to the open ocean and back in their quest to get to this truth: Are the orcas getting enough to eat while in their core summer foraging ground?
