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

Two aquaculture-origin Atlantic salmon were among seven adult fish collected on Nova Scotia’s Gaspereau River this year for breeding at Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Coldbrook Biodiversity Facility, a hatchery where populations of critically endangered inner Bay of Fundy Atlantic salmon are maintained.

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.
