Escaped atlantic salmon have already been recorded in over 80 rivers in British Columbia, and even in the Copper River in Alaska. Not adults running upriver to spawn, but alevins and smolt from adults that have already spawned! The escaped atlantic salmon have already invaded the west coast!

At 32 years of age, i hate it when i find myself talking about the good old days when there were no atlantic salmon competing with native species that were already in trouble.
