  1. That is indeed heartening news for Maine and Atlantic salmon. I’m with you on “rewilding” America. Would love to see more of our west coast dams come down… but fear population growth & energy needs necessitate more coal-burning power plants, which means more mercury… Look at the DNR page for virtually every state: fish consumptions warnings. mercury… Meanwhile, we have HUGE problems with genetic contamination from hatcheries out here. Glad I found your blog and look forward to more. Grew up in Clarion, PA. Jack
