Science Festival asks Mainers to get excited about salmon

MSF Pop-Up Event

The Maine Science Festival is hosting a pop-up event on Feb. 28 at the Maine Discovery Museum to get Mainers interested in the preservation of salmon. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the event is a partnership between the agency, the festival and the museum. It’s taking place during the world International Year of the Salmon initiative.[Maine’s Atlantic salmon likely to be on ‘endangered’ list for another 75 years] Organizers said the Bangor pop-up will be a gallery event featuring artist Karen Talbot’s “Maine’s River Run Fish” exhibit. There will also be a presentation about the history of salmon in Maine. The federal government recently outlined a new plan to restore populations of Atlantic salmon in the eastern United States. The Atlantic salmon’s only remaining wild populations in the U.S. are in Maine rivers.
