The number of salmon returning to Maine's rivers to find spawning grounds has declined for the third straight year, with the only 720 fish returning so far this year to the Penobscot, Maine's premiere salmon river, as compared to 830 by this time last year. The Maine Atlantic Sea Run Salmon Commission had been expecting more fish this year, partly because it had boosted stocking of juvenile salmon by 20 percent in 1992. Pollution, dam construction and overfishing are thought to be the primary causes of the continuing decline in stocks of salmon. Details.
