There's apparently been an escape of Atlantic salmon from cages off the Pacific coast of Canada that are now turning up in the nearby rivers....crazy!!

Hi Sewin, they have been escaping for as long as the farms have been there! Probably 30 years now. It is catch and kill if you get one

I've not read all this thread but just to inform all of you that some pinks were caught last summer in miscellaneous French rivers, from Dover Strait to Western Brittany... Fisheries managements seem worried about.

Default Non-native pink salmon species are here to stay warning

After the influx of non-native pink salmon a new genetics study has started in Scotland. Using the latest technology and help from Inverness College (University of Highlands & islands) Rivers and Lochs Institute Professor E. Verspoor is hoping to get a handle on the possible threats and long term effects Pink salmon will cause. This includes monitoring of rivers to see if there are viable juveniles and permanent populations in Scottish rivers. There is also the risk of introduction of parasites and diseases to native Atlantic Salmon. The Dee board is so concerned with the threat of pink salmon it starting mapping out pink salmon redds to help monitor and get rid of the invasive species. A total of 248 pink salmon redds were found in the Dee survey with the biggest concentration being in the lower river at|Banchory. Following a risk assessment being carried out in the UK by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science a report has bee produced that suggests it is very likely that Pink Salmon species will establish itself within the |UK

We had three in our week in Iceland last year. However, none that I know of have made it to Wales. The government here has an original way of preventing them from getting a hold especially in west Wales: By allowing massive amounts of slurry, silage liquor pesticides etc into our best SAC rivers we have successfully kept them out. Unfortunately the sea trout and Atlantic salmon populations seem to be in free fall.

Not to worry, the lice will probably get them or are they more resistant?.
