Scientific name: Salmo salar 
SARA Status: Under consideration 
COSEWIC Status: Endangered (2010) 

The outer Bay of Fundy (oBoF) Atlantic salmon population is in decline.  Over the last 15 years, this population has declined by 64%.  At sea mortality is believed to pose the greatest threat to this population.  The Hammond River houses 1 of 20 remaining oBoF salmon populations.  Since 1977, HRAA staff and volunteers have tracked the oBoF salmon population in the Hammond River system. Through our continued research efforts and long-term population monitoring, the HRAA  has bettered our understanding of this population and continues to manage the landscape to protect this species.
