Individuals can participate through upcoming open houses and workshops where we will present the Recovery Strategy and action plans, and ask for public input on them. We will also be offering training for anglers, particularly dedicated trout and salmon anglers and charter boat operators, on identifying Atlantic salmon. Even fisheries professionals can have a hard time separating Atlantic salmon from brown and rainbow trout. Anglers will also be asked to voluntarily record their catches of Atlantic salmon to help us understand rates of return and movement patterns. Landowners will be able to participate through stream habitat restoration and local stocking events.
We will also require volunteers for these stocking events.
