There is an interesting little article on Didymo or "Rock Snot" and it's effects on Salmon in the Chronicle Herald. Here is the link http://thechronicleh...fects-on-salmon

 

One very interesting statement, which contradicts everything I've heard on the topic,

"The project follows on Kurek’s research more than a year ago that found Didymo was not an invasive species that was transferred to rivers by anglers on their boats and gear as previously believed.

 

Rather, he found the offending organisms have been around for thousands of years but were only becoming prolific more recently possibly as a result of ecological changes."

 

Should anyone find a link to this study I'd appreciate a link being posted.

 

Anyway, just thought this might be of interest as we are all concerned with any stressor that may affect Salmon in our area, now or in the future.
