Maine Department of Marine Resources, Division of Sea-Run Fisheries and Habitat staff conduct routine monitoring of the abundance and status of adult Atlantic salmon and other fish species in many Maine rivers. Staff operate traps at fishways and barrier weirs to monitor fish returns to the Penobscot (Milford Dam), and Narraguagus (Cherryfield Dam); Great Lakes Hydro, America operates a trap at Weldon Dam in the upper Penobscot drainage, Pennsylvania Power and Light operates a trap at the Ellsworth Dam on the Union River; Florida Power and Light operates traps and lifts at two hydroelectric projects on the Saco River, Maine DMR operates one on the Androscoggin River, and the St. Croix Waterway Commission operates a trap at the Milltown Dam on the St. Croix River. These fish counting facilities are typically operated from May through early November each year. Staff update the statewide trap catch summary weekly or more often during the peak of the fish migrations. The statewide trap catch table includes counts of sea-run salmon captured on Maine rivers and salmon removed from the river as broodstock for restocking of Maine rivers and DOES NOT include captures of aquaculture strays or captive reared adult salmon released from Federal hatcheries.

File Troff document West Branch Brook Culvert Assessment and Design - Final Report
Project SHARE conducted a preconstruction site assessment of the 30-00-0 road crossing of West Branch Brook. West Branch Brook is a head water tributary of the Narraguagus River. The Beddington Lake HUC 12 is the top priority focus area for Atlantic salmon restoration in the Narraguagus River. Funding for this project was provided by the Gulf of Maine Council with assistance from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Maine Fishery Resources Office.

The restoration of the Penobscot River was an unprecedented and innovative effort to remove two dams and build a state-of-the-art fish bypass around a third. As a result, hundreds of miles of habitat along the Penobscot and its tributaries were re-opened for sea-run fish, with tremendous benefits to biological and human communities along the river.

File ECMAScript program Atlantic Salmon Recovery Proposal Guidelines
(Note: This is not a funding proposal). This is an interim template for proposing Atlantic salmon related projects within the Gulf of Maine DPS. Proposals may be required if a project proponent is requesting Atlantic salmon to conduct a study, or requesting agency support or resources. The GOM DPS is divided into 3 Salmon Habitat Recovery Units (SHRUs). Each SHRU is managed by a team under the Atlantic salmon program's Collaborative Management Strategy (CMS). Project proponents should first discuss their project with the appropriate SHRU Team or, if a project is not specific to a SHRU, the project proponent should first contact that CMS's administrative coordinator. For information on project proposals contact: Dan Kircheis at Dan.Kircheis@noaa.gov (CMS administrative Coordinator)

When the project is complete, sea-run fish - such as salmon, sturgeon, alewives and shad - will have significantly improved access to about 1,000 miles of upstream habitat.
