    Americna ( Rainbow) Smelt

    Rainbow smelt populations are exploding in Hudson Bay- which has the potential to harm a lot of species. Stocking of new salmon rivers with climate adapted hatchery stock may be the best way to restore the equilibrium-

    and provide a vast new salmon fishery.

    Twice the size of the Noth Sea...

    Rainbow smelt have recently invaded Hudson bay. The Smelt is a major food source for Atlantic salmon but requires a voracious 'predator fish'.

    The spread of an adapted cold water salmon can produce a huge commercial and sport fishery as Hudson bay warms. The bay is a preferred fishery, being cold, and unpolluted.

    Nastapoka Salmon- Arctic warming good news!

    The riverís estuary is one of the two main gathering sites of beluga whales in eastern Hudson Bay, a population officially designated as at risk. The lower reaches of the river are home to the only salmon population on the entire east coast of Hudson Bay, a unique population that does not migrate to the ocean

    the Nastapoka salmon has become acclimatised to Hudson and James bay, and efforts are being made to hatchery raise and transplant them to other Bay rivers
