Aquaculture salmon detected in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Maine rivers

"AQUACULTURE ESCAPEES DETECTED AT THREE SITES IN THE BAY OF FUNDY AND GULF OF MAINE IN 2021, INCLUDING DURING BROODSTOCK COLLECTION FOR CRITICALLY ENDANGERED POPULATION" - Atlantic Salmon Federation


"In addition to the Gaspereau River discoveries, four aquaculture salmon were captured this year at a dam on the Union River in Maine according to the state’s Department of Marine Resources.


ASF scientists also found three aquaculture salmon trying to enter the Magaguadavic River in Southwest New Brunswick. ASF has monitored the Magaguadavic River fishway at St. George since 1992. Escapees have been recovered every year and the vast majority cannot be traced to any known breach of containment."
