Excellent comprehensive video on Atlantic Salmon restoration


Recommended Posts

Need to watch it all the way through. They make some great points that are relevant to the Lake O fishery as well.

This video should be mandatory viewing by all the "do gooders" at our hearings. It will have them on a better track when they speak up or comment on the web.

 

Another good Atlqantic Salmon video on Lake Huron  is from the "411" crew at "Detour Passage Atlantic Salmon"..Trolling methods are shown.

The Ontario Government and other interested companies have tried to bring Lake Ontario to " What it was " with an effort to reestablish the Atlantic salmon fishery which was effectively wiped out before 1900 by poaching [ farmers used pitchforks to " harvest " the fish for pig food ] ? loss of habitant as shown in the video ! It looked like the natural habitant structure had been cleared for what reason ? As seen by the replanting efforts with trees etc. by the volunteers !

So far these efforts have not achieved much ! one of the problems has been the forage base ie. the cisco which also disappeared , the alwife creates a thiamine problem in the Atlantic salmon ! Our efforts to reestablish the cisco have been dubious at best
