Another great day releasing salmon on October 4th 2017 into the Petitcodiac watershed! One hundred and thirty five endangered inner Bay of Fundy Atlantic salmon were returned back to their home, most ready to spawn.

We would like to thank the landowner and her family for their continued generosity for the use of their property. A big thanks to our partners who helped: Cooke Aquaculture (especially Matt, Stan, Barry, Corey and Tim for all their hard work!), Fundy National Park and ACFFA; as well as other organizations C&P, DNR, AMEC, NCC, Mayor of Petitcodiac, and a member from Alaina Lockhart’s Office for helping and attending.

A huge thank you to other interested parties, landowners and volunteers for helping and participating in the release, we hope you had a wonderful experience getting hands on with the salmon! And lastly, thank you to the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation for their continued support and funding, without it this amazing day would not be able to happen!
