You are invited to comment on the application from the University of Maine, PRT-TE085765. This application requests authorization to take (harass, in the form of stress, and kill) Gulf of Maine, distinct population segment (DPS), Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) stocks, for scientific purposes. DPS stocks for this study include stock from the Denny's, Machias, East Machias, Pleasant, Sheepscot, and Narraguagus Rivers. No wild fish will be used in this study, only stocks currently propagated at the Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery. This proposal seeks to monitor and evaluate certain tasks associated with juvenile salmon stocking and survival. The proposed plan of study will include: Tagging of juvenile salmon (PIT tags) in order to follow life history variation through time to smoltification; lethal sampling of stocked fry in order to sample otoliths; and a diet study in order to better understand competition within a focal study system.
