I had seen a PBS documentary about the last 2 Maine rivers with
returning stocks of Atlantic Salmon which got a lot of help from
Maine Fisheries - the returning stocks are VERY small.
In 2008 there was an optomistic increase in the numbers.
Norway still has returning runs - commercial fishing has been benned there.
When hiking in Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia and in Newfoundland I saw them running up rivers and spoke with some fly fisherman about it.
They said the returning runs had kept a pretty constant number - commercial fishing was banned.
They are also quite numerous in Labrador.
