Gaspe Region Rivers Receive Atlantic Salmon

Gaspe Region Rivers Receive Atlantic Salmon

Some very good news from the Atlantic Salmon Federation:

Highlights:

A report issued by the Quebec Government indicates that an estimated 17,705 salmon returned to the rivers of Quebec's Gaspe region in 2011; 21% more than 2010 and 49% more than the average number from 2006 to 2010. "This is encouraging news," said Bill Taylor, President of the Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) "and confirms the anecdotal reports from anglers that resounded throughout the season last year. Quebec is the first province to report, and we expect similar information from regions throughout eastern Canada."
