Striped Bass in the Bay of Chaleur
Some can grow to 6.6 feet. The Federal government protects the species, as they are labelled as an endangered species. People were saying that the Striped bass population is high in the Bay of Chaleur, and that maybe in certain areas the Federal Government should lift the ban. Hopefully the fisheries will weight in, and see if the numbers did increase. If so, we need to know what effect they do have on salmon populations, as the salmon is an important industry here in the North as well. Not only for tourism, but for guides, and outfitters.
In Jacquet River N.B., they do have a Salmon interpretation center. Here, the salmon come up to spawn in late July. There, you can get a tour of the salmon gated facility, where the salmon are locked in. They are allowed to go up a few at a time in order to spawn. This way, they are protected and monitored for study. It is a small but beautiful river.
Well, nothing new for now on the book front. I hope you all have a good day. Till next time..
