Crime of the Week: Protecting Fundy Atlantic Salmon
Fundy National Park and its partners are releasing hundreds of wild, endangered inner Bay of Fundy Atlantic Salmon back to their native rivers to spawn.
As rivers cross jurisdictional boundaries and the value of salmon is high, a collaboration of six law enforcement agencies will be monitoring our rivers for their protection. Salmon are an iconic part of New Brunswick’s cultural and natural heritage. Let’s protect and preserve this heritage for all future generations.
Together with Crime Stoppers, you can help ensure the protection of Atlantic salmon during a critical period of their life cycle.
If you see someone catching salmon, or interfering with the natural habitat or migration of salmon that are part of the inner Bay of Fundy salmon population, contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (1-800-222-8477), texting TIP212 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637), or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca. We want your information, not your name. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest.
