Wild Atlantic Salmon make a remarkable comeback in U.S. rivers after a decade

In a heartening turn of events, wild Atlantic salmon have experienced their most fruitful year in over a decade in U.S. rivers, offering a glimmer of hope amidst ecological challenges. Maine state data reveals that over 1,500 salmon were counted in the Penobscot River, home to the largest Atlantic salmon run in the country—marking the highest count since 2011.

Once on the brink due to overfishing, habitat loss, and pollution, these salmon’s resilience suggests that conservation efforts are yielding results. Rising numbers of river herring may also be supporting their journey. While challenges persist, this progress inspires optimism for the future of these iconic fish.
