Will Darvall, lead researcher on the salmon study, said: “Things are very bad for salmon. When I was young, I could go down the river and watch them jump, but now you’d be lucky to see it. If nothing changes, and we continue in this direction, “salmon are headed for extinction. We hope that this decline can be reduced.”

Salmon hatch in freshwater streams, then migrate to the ocean as adults, and finally return to their birthplace to breed, their journeys spanning thousands of miles..

The researchers found that Atlantic salmon populations declined by 23% between 2006 and 2020, with the species classified as “near threatened” globally..
