Efforts to restore the population of wild Atlantic salmon in the Inner Bay of Fundy between Nova and New Brunswick has reached a milestone as wild-hatched offspring are leaving their home rivers for the first time and migrating to the Bay of Fundy to feed.

The parents of the young salmon were collected from the wild as juveniles and raised to maturity in a Cooke Aquaculture conservation farm on Grand Manan Island.

The Fundy Salmon Recovery Project is a collaboration between industry, academia, provincial and federal governments and First Nations.
