New England Steelhead?

Could we possibly see another run of Atlantic steelhead once some of these escape into the wild? I’ve often wondered if a river like the Kennebec could support a run of steelhead.

It would ot be the first time steelhead escaped an Atlantic net pen. 

Friends of the Earth and Center for Food Safety have formally accused the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of violating the Endangered Species Act for funding “an industrial ocean fish farm in violation of federal law”.

The groups sent a letter to NOAA notifying them of their intent to sue after NOAA’s Sea Grant program helped to fund a steelhead farm off the coast of New Hampshire.
