Pixel Planet Today's post

Super news! Currently, there are more Atlantic salmon in American rivers than at any other time in the last decade! And by looking at the trends, it's not a fluke. Decades of dam construction, overfishing, and pollution had greatly slashed salmon numbers. But in the Penobscot River in Maine, four of the last five years have seen salmon numbers reach over 1,000; the years before never saw more than 850. . But in the grand scheme of things, that number still has a ways to go before things can be considered "fine". Before intense damming of East Coast rivers, salmon runs were in the tens of thousands. The fish fall under the protection of the Endangered Species Act, and with the reported uptick in numbers, conservationists are hopeful for increased measures (since something is definitely working). . .
