Two pieces of fisheries-related news were welcomed with enthusiastic responses by Atlantic salmon conservationists in Maine last week.
Dwayne Shaw, the executive director of the Downeast Salmon Federation, and Andrew Goode, the vice president of U.S. programs for the Atlantic Salmon Federation in Brunswick, said the removal of a dam on Smelt Brook in Sullivan and a reduction of the ocean harvest of Atlantic salmon off Greenland were both positive measures that could pay dividends in the future.
