News from the Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF)

Salmon Farmers in New Brunswick are temporarily allowed to use the restricted pesticide Alphamax (deltamethrin) against sea lice, which worries fishermen and environmentalists.

An interesting letter from the Chairman of Fisheries Committee for the NB Wildlife Federation appeared in the Telegraph Journal on the issue of smallmouth bass in the Miramichi River.

Speaking of the Miramichi: Despite the economic slump, salmon lodges on the Miramichi did very well this year.

Is that the same lice medicine that is now believed to be the cause of the lobster kill off Grand Manan this spring? I also heard it didn't work well in the increased water temperature this past summer so there was an explosion of lice in the cages leading to a large mortality rate in the cages, especially those around Deer Island. An explosion of lice in the Bay of Funday can't be good when the Funday rivers are having one of their best years in decades for returning salmon.

More crimes against Mother Nature by Big Business! Between what the aquaculture industry is doing in the Bay of Fundy and the forestry companies are doing in our woods,do sportsmen even have a fighting chance? The status quo is unacceptable on both ends of this mess we have going on in our province. Before anyone jumps to the conclusion I am against Big Business,I will tell you I am not. Having said that,there is a right way and a wrong way to do everything and when you let money dictate policy,that is when the boogie man takes control. This stuff continues to gag me. Is there any relief in sight?

I lived out on the west coast for several years and seen the aquaculture industry destroy salmon stocks there. The government continues to ignore scientific data that these farms are killing native salmon. Plenty of obstacles to overcome in our battle to save salar.
