When it comes to the recovery of wild Atlantic salmon stocks, the question on the minds of conservation managers and the public alike is “what works?” In order to synthesize current knowledge on salmon recovery, the Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) is hosting an international workshop that brings together stakeholder groups, scientists, and managers to assess Atlantic salmon recovery programs across Eastern North America. International speakers and participants have been attracted to the conference, which will be held in Chamcook, N.B. on September 18-19, 2013.

Conservation groups concerned with the preservation and restoration of wild Atlantic salmon in both Canada and the United States can breathe a little easier this week, following President Obama’s announcement on Tuesday that he will unveil a new Climate Action Plan to reduce carbon emissions. The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) says that the newly unveiled strategy comes at a critical time, since many populations of Atlantic salmon have declined to historically low levels across their North American range.

On June 5 a celebration at the Grand Falls Fishway was held, near the banks of the St. Croix River. The event was in honor of the reopening of all the St. Croix to the native alewives. Beginning in 1995, the Maine Legislature had closed the Grand Falls and other fishways to the alewives on the concern they might be adversely impacting the smallmouth bass, an introduced alien species.

The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) announced it has now restored access to 15,000 acres of ponds and lakes and 300 miles of river for Maine’s native sea-run fish. These achievements are part of ASF’s Maine Headwaters Project that is focused on restoring critical spawning habitat to sea-run fish in tributaries identified as high priorities in State of Maine fisheries restoration plans. While the target species are Atlantic salmon and alewives, these restoration projects provide a broad range of benefits for all fish and wildlife along the river corridor.

After nearly twenty years of exile from their native waters, alewives will once again migrate up the St. Croix River watershed. The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) is pleased that Bill LD 72 became law today, requiring state officials to remove barriers to fish passage at Grand Falls Dam. The law comes into effect just in time as the alewives begin their up-river migration to their spawning grounds, and scientists are optimistic that a healthy run will be re-established.

Veazie Dam: Freeing the East Channel
On October 10, 2013 the Sargent Corp. breached the cofferdam that allowed them to remove the main section of the Veazie Dam. After breaching, workers trucked materials to the other side of the cofferdam to extend it back to the west shoreline so they could continue removing the foundation of the forebay wall, the remainder of the fish ladder, and other infrastructure near the Veazie powerhouse. The east channel of the Penobscot River at this site now flows freely over bedrock for the first time in 100 years!
