Many thanks to Mike HIrshfield at Oceana for sending along this little piece of good news: Atlantic salmon have returned to the Seine River. After having disappeared for nearly a century due to dams, overfishing, and pollution, hundreds of Atlantic salmon are swimming past the Eiffel Tower this year. The reason? Scientists say it's simple: cleaner water.
Amazing! This just shows how important habitat is to the recovery of fish populations. Did you see the 85 lbs salmon that was found in California last fall: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,446686,00.html
