This is a present for all seasons: three major dams on the Penobscot River in Maine have been purchased for $24M in order to decommission them. This major milestone taking place today follows more than a decade of the Atlantic Salmon Federation and many other organizations working together.

There has been no project like this elsewhere in the world - and that includes Canada in general, and Atlantic Canada in particular. For a backgrounder on the Penobscot Project, the best chance to restore wild Atlantic salmon runs in the U.S., visit the resources page:

Hi Salmonthink
Good work!
Times have changed - 10 years ago when I wanted to remove the dam on the Mushamush river - in Nova Scotia organizations gave me a stoney silence but then again I'm not the most likeable guy in the world so prehaps I deserved that!
But I managed to do it - sans fanfare. A small project you say - only cost $200,000 or thereabouts. So when you say "There has been no project like this elsewhere in the world - and that includes Canada in general, and Atlantic Canada in particular. " Seems you might be a little forgetful. Perhaps you are getting old or choose to forget it!
Even if it fails to qualify on your yard stick, the salmon seem to appreciate it which is why I done that.
Have a nice Holiday season
Paul
