Squinting at the Future of Atlantic Salmon

December 14, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

Dave Sherwood writes about the life of a Sheepscot River Atlantic salmon, a fish that along with many other populations of salmon in northeastern North America is experiencing a steady decline. There’s some interesting observation here on “smoltification” and conjecture about why salmon parr are no longer able to complete the process successfully. Also mentioned is an upcoming book by James Babb on the natural and physical history of Maine’s Sheepscot River. On MaineToday.com.
