Again the IJC has failed to act to open fishways for native alewives/gaspereau on the international St. Croix River on the border of Maine and New Brunswick. Read more.

In addition, a Canadian Geographic article in the June 2011 issue gave excellent background to the alewives in the St. Croix.

You know who to thank for that...

It is scary when an organization like the ASF is outgunned on the governmental playing field by a bunch of totally unscientific and unreasonable bass fishermen. I guess no one from the ASF is eligiable to vote in Maine, so that could be their disadvantage!
Hopefully all their bass become stunted or die off from lack of food. They probably can't catch anything when there is an abundance of prey (ie gaspereau, spawning runs and juvenile run to sea) and therefore they say the gaspereau are eating all the eggs, killing the bass whatever it is they think. It must be much easier to catch bass that are hungry and key on crawfish.

The alewife are near the base of the food chain for everything from bass, to birds, to saltwater predators and add much needed nutrients to the eco system. Regardless if the bass were there for 100yrs, the gaspereau are native and should always take precedence. Canada should be building a fishway for the gaspereau! To hell with the yanks

Canada doesn't have the balls to do that
