Presented by Debbie Norton, MSA Director, President of the Miramichi Watershed Management Committee, camp owner, entrepreneur, former Miramichi Valley high school teacher, and native Miramichier whose family has lived in the valley since the mid 19th century.
The Collaboration for Atlantic Salmon Tomorrow (“CAST”). The CAST partnership comprises prominent scientists, environmental groups and industries for the first time working together on the problem of Atlantic Salmon preservation. The MSA plays a critical operating and management role in its six science projects on the Miramichi and Restigouche rivers. Presented by Tommi Linnansari, from the University of New Brunswick.
Grey Seal Predation and its effect on Atlantic Salmon and its ecosystem. The presentation will cover the over-abundance of grey seals in the Maritimes, its consequences, and the challenges of restoring proper balance among the affected species in its ecosystem. Suju Mahendrappa has studied the problem for years, is an acknowledged expert on the subject, and Director of Maritime Seal Management, Inc.
The common history of Sea Run Brook Trout and Atlantic Salmon runs in eastern North America. Sea Run Brook Trout and Atlantic Salmon have migrated together historically across New England and still do today in the Canadian Maritimes. Vestiges of the Massachusetts “salter” run remain, and Ronald Lasko has been intimately involved in rebuilding it. He frequently lectures on the subject, is the author of ‘A TALE OF TWO RIVERS’, the first full length book written about Sea Run Brook Trout, which has received Editorial Acclaim in America and the United Kingdom.
Since 1953, the Miramichi Salmon Association (MSA) and its members have directed their capabilities and their funds to the protection of the entire Miramichi River system. The MSA watches over the Miramichi as a champion of conservation on behalf of anglers, outfitters, guides and all others with economic, environmental and recreational interests in the river.
