• We Believe....

    We believe that the time has come for the implementation of an integrated approach to Atlantic salmon conservation goals.

    We believe that the time has come for the implementation of an integrated approach to Atlantic salmon conservation goals in which the federal government and the provincial government work together cooperatively, rather than separately.
  • New Brunswick Salmon Council

    We are the New Brunswick Salmon Council. Affiliated with the Atlantic Salmon Federation, with which we cooperate in our common pursuits. The NBSC promotes and supports conservation planning and management at the watershed level, as an ecological and geographic unit, as the basis for promoting the most effective use of, and accountability for, funds made available to its funded projects

"The ASF and the NBSC has posed the following questions to NB's political parties before the 2020 election.  Check back before the election to view their responses."

Link to questions

The only party to respond was the PCs', they did not send specific answers to our questions: "Due to the short election period, time constraints and limited resources, we were unable to provide specific responses to each request" . Link to their letter

Due note that the PCs supported "True North Salmon" (open net pen) and the Striped Bass from Eel Ground First Nation.

SMB Eradication

 

Please Help Support the Proposed Project to Eradicate Invasive Smallmouth Bass from the Greater Miramichi River System

 

As you know, smallmouth bass are serious competitors with, and predators of juvenile Atlantic salmon.  Unless bass are eliminated from Miramichi Lake, where they were illegally introduced, and from a short section of the Southwest Miramichi River into which they migrated, they will become established throughout much of the remainder of the Greater Miramichi watershed.

We are accepting donations to support the North Shore Mic Mac District Council and Working Group partners to eradicate smallmouth bass from the range in which they presently exist in the Southwest Miramichi system.  The funds will be used to purchase a Health Canada-approved piscicide and necessary equipment, and to implement the eradication. The results and ecosystem recovery will be monitored for 5 years.  These donations are tax deductible.  Unless you specifically request it, your name will be published on this site as a donor, but the amount you contribute will not.

Until we get an electronic funding system in place, cheques to the NB Salmon Council can be sent to:
