Campbellton and Miramichi salmon concerns

Greenland says it won’t stop harvesting Atlantic salmon, despite a request by scientific experts at international meetings.

That country says it will harvest as much as 14,000 large salmon this year, many of them from endangered runs such as the rivers in the Campbellton and Miramichi areas.

Due to dwindling numbers of fish, the feds have banned anglers from keeping young salmon caught in the Gulf of St. Lawrence region; for three seasons straight.
