13. ME gets $20 mil to rebuild state fish hatcheries.
> MDIFW will utilize a $20 mil investment from Governor Mills’ Maine Jobs & Recovery Plan to redesign and rebuild two state fish hatcheries in Grand Lake Stream and New Gloucester. The two hatcheries produce over 70% of ME’s landlocked salmon and over 40% of the states brown trout that are stocked each year.
14. ME: St. Croix River alewives get a $5-mil boost.
> The St. Croix River once teemed with millions of migratory fish. New federal funding announced Thurs should give a boost to the recovering fish runs.
> The river’s runs of alewives, Atlantic salmon, eels, and shad declined after a series of dams blocked the fish from their spawning grounds, and the state of Maine blocked fish passage at those dams.
> Now, the fish are getting a boost from $5 million in federal money. The funds will go toward building a fish lift at the Woodland Dam, which will be the lowest dam on the river after the Milltown Dam is removed next year.
