The Ducktrap River flows for less than nine miles from its headwaters to Penobsc
The Ducktrap River flows for less than nine miles from its headwaters to Penobscot Bay north of Camden and is home to Maine's wildest native Atlantic salmon population. The Ducktrap Coalition, an umbrella group of 15 organizations, is working to protect the Ducktrap River, which is one of seven Maine rivers with native salmon being considered for threatened status under the federal Endangered Species Act. Coalition coordinator Bill Zwartjes of the Coastal Mountains Land Trust said the coalition is a river coalition, no just a salmon coalition. Some see the coalition's cooperative conservation efforts as a model for other watersheds. Details.
