Recovery Plan Pages
Current threats to Atlantic salmon include both the primary and secondary factors identified in the final rule (74 FR 29344). In addition, this recovery plan identifies undersized or poorly designed and installed road stream crossings as a primary threat and – to account for rapidly changing environmental conditions – places greater emphasis on addressing threats to the co-evolved diadromous fish community and to fully functioning and connected habitats.
There are two primary goals of the Broodstock Management Plan (BMP). The first goal is to describe and explain current broodstock management practices at CBNFH. The second goal of the BMP is to provide a framework with quantifiable values to evaluate the hatchery program in relation to the management objectives.
The following governance structure is intended to minimize the impacts of differences among the government entities involved in efforts to recover Atlantic salmon and to maintain a high level of timely and effective communication among these government entities and non-government organizations, including industry and the general public.

In Maine, the Wabanaki people represent four Tribes: the Passamaquoddy Tribe in Washington County; the Penobscot Indian Nation based at Indian Island on the Penobscot River; the Houlton Band of Maliseets in Northern Maine, and the Aroostook Band of Micmacs also in Northern Maine. Atlantic salmon and the suite of diadromous fish indigenous to Maine’s rivers, streams, lakes and ponds are of great cultural importance to the Tribes throughout the region.
