The future of the Atlantic salmon restoration program in the Merrimack River will be discussed, and an update on the status of other fisheries restoration efforts in the watershed will be provided, at a meeting of the Merrimack River Policy Committee at 10 AM on Thursday, September 5, 2013, at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department in Concord, NH.
The Merrimack River Policy Committee is a partnership of state and federal agencies that work together on diadromous (fish that migrate between salt and fresh waters) fisheries restoration in the Merrimack River watershed. These include the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, the Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game, the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries, the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The meeting is open to the public, and comments and questions will be welcome. For more information, contact Matthew Carpenter at matthew.carpenter(at)wildlife.nh.gov or 603-271-2501.
