Concerns raised by salmon group over discovery of farmed fish in East Coast rivers | The Record
Atlantic Salmon Federation, "The New Brunswick-based conservation group said it was the second year in a row — and the third time since 2017 — that escapees were removed from the Gaspereau River. The fish captured in Nova Scotia were being collected for a Fisheries Department hatchery, where populations of endangered Bay of Fundy Atlantic salmon are maintained, the federation said."
Susan Farquharson, executive director of the Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association (ACFF) said “Escape events are rare and are largely a result of extreme weather events,” .
Someone should remind Farquharson that extreme weather events are the norm from here on out in this age of climate change.
