The Miramichi Salmon Association works closely with government and non-government organizations to help keep the Miramichi River stocked with Atlantic salmon. JD Irving recently posted a video to Youtube discussing the broodstock collection and subsequent stocking of salmon fry at Burnt Hill Brook on the Southwest Miramichi River. MSA President Mark Hambrook describes the broodstock collection process and you can watch our staff at work.
Broodstock collection has now been completed for 2012 except for some fish that will be individually angled. We are holding the broodstock at the Miramichi Salmon Conservation Centre (fish hatchery) in South Esk until they are ready for spawn. If you would like to watch the spawning contact the office at 506.622.4000 to arrange for a visit.
