Did you know?
  • Salmon from the Inner Bay of Fundy are unique and found nowhere else in the world;
  • Total adult salmon populations have declined by over 95% in 30 years;
  • In 2003, an educated guess is that less than 100 adults returned to spawn in the 32 home rivers;
  • No one understands why they have declined;
  • They are at risk of disappearing forever; and
  • Atlantic Salmon is currently listed as Endangered under SARA.
