• We Believe....

    We believe that the time has come for the implementation of an integrated approach to Atlantic salmon conservation goals.

    We believe that the time has come for the implementation of an integrated approach to Atlantic salmon conservation goals in which the federal government and the provincial government work together cooperatively, rather than separately.

NB Power Tobique Narrows Dam fish passage improvments

Released March 7/2018

“We congratulate NB Power on the opening of their salmon pre-smolt, smolt and kelt collection and by-pass facility at the Tobique Narrows Dam.  Thanks also to DFO.  The facility will be a huge boost to restoring salmon to the upper St. John River.  The NBSC was instrumental in lobbying for the construction of this facility.  Now on to implementing effective upstream and downstream passage at all other dams in the system and towards restoring salmon to their historic range including the Aroostook River.  The photos here are from the opening of the facility on November 20, 2017.”
