Salmon Facts Welcomes WildAtlanticSalmon.Org to the Website
Salmon Facts is proud to announce the acquisition of Wild Atlantic Salmon
The former website, wildatlanticsalmon.org, chronicled and promoted The Parr Project starting in 2012 on Maine's East Machias River. The project is based on successful salmon restoration methods used by Peter Gray on the River Tyne.
The Atlantic salmon's life cycle is fascinating and complex, involving a dramatic journey from coastal rivers to the open ocean and back again. Wild Atlantic salmon are an anadromous fish species, meaning they live in the ocean but breed in freshwater rivers.
Atlantic salmon are members of the salmon family along with brown trout, char, and whitefish. They are a popular choice for sport fishing as well as for their rich flavor and healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
The wild Atlantic salmon is one of the most iconic fish in the world. It is also one of the most threatened. Overfishing, pollution, and the construction of dams have all contributed to a drastic decline in wild salmon populations. In some areas, salmon populations have declined by over 90%.
There is some hope for the future of the wild Atlantic salmon. In recent years, there have been efforts to improve salmon habitat and increase salmon populations. These efforts have been successful in some areas, and it is hoped that they will be successful in others.
The future of the wild Atlantic salmon is uncertain, but as the world's oceans continue to warm, the future of the wild Atlantic salmon is in real jeopardy.
The good news is that salmon are adaptable, and some things can be done to help them survive in a changing climate. But time is running out, and we need to act now if we want their populations to rebound.
