File Draft Atlantic Salmon Recovery Framework: 3/2011
The Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment of Atlantic salmon is listed under the Endangered Species Act and is at critically low levels. There is a strong public desire and legal mandate to recover this species which will result in benefits to the ecosystem and to the general public. Efforts to date have not successfully recovered the species. Given limited resources and competing priorities, there is a need to ensure that state and federal resource agencies coordinate closely to agree on a collective strategy to identify and implement the highest priority management actions and scientific studies that have the greatest potential to further our recovery objectives.

They visit the waterways in January and February, sometimes dragging their equipment on a plastic sled more than a mile to the sites, to mimic wild salmon spawning. They're planting thousands of eggs in the gravel of riverbeds, an effort mostly funded through a federal grant.

The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) is pleased to receive $174,000 for the conservation organization’s Maine Headwaters Project from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries Center. The funds are being used to build two fishways on tributary streams as well as replacing two impassable road crossing culverts with fish-friendly bridges. Together, these projects are providing access to 5,400 lake acres and 69 river miles for Atlantic salmon and river herring such as alewives and blueback herring.
