Salmon Restoration Merrimack River NH

     Abundant and Natural River Accords: The Salmon Act

      The Salmonid, Smelt and other Oceanic River Runs of New England are conservatively said to be at %5 of their historical runs when in regards to Salmon, but one could assume in reality they are much lower when mass of life volume is accounted for. These potential restored runs can account for fiscal profits for the State of New Hampshire but also a reestablishment of proper methods of nature, to detour from the ravages of human culture.

 

1. These Accords would allow for the Department of Fish and Game which already has a sound approval process for similar projects and Dam Bureau (with dams) to approve projects by any New Hampshire Office, Citizen or Organization to file to do projects on Public, Private or State Property within the confines of these accords but not abridging already established statutes, practices, property laws and other applicable laws unless directly and specifically conflicting with these accords.
 
A. Doing such accords would allow for the destruction of unneeded dams that would not flood any populated property, otherwise used property or any areas of concern weather Public, Private or the State’s, and replacing or upgrading other dams with fish ladders. New Hampshire Fish and Game in tandem with the New Hampshire Dam Bureau will be able to ascertain in a two prong approval process where and if this can or should be done on a dam by dam basis.
 
B. Proper, natural, and indigenous vegetation should be allowed to be put on public, private, state or federal river banks, brook banks and stream banks to shade those habitats from the sun, which is their natural environment and promotes proper river fish, with approval from the department or division Fish and Game deems appropriate.
 
C. These accords should allow for the construction of man-made Indigenous Salmonid and Smelt Spawning Pools within their native and natural habitats, which construction and continued over-cite can be regulated by New Hampshire Fish and Game.

 

2. Putting salmonid eggs directly in their natural habitat may potentially calibrate said lifeforms to local magnetism or some other biological factor, to hopefully adjust natural guiding mechanism back to original origin, and bring more Salmon back to the New Hampshire eco-system. A project is currently underway operated by New Hampshire Fish and Game to restore the salmon runs to the Merrimack River, it should be upgraded to allow for the direct implementation of natural, native and genetically unmolested salmonid and smelt to be directly transplanted as eggs into any salmonid or smelt spawning pool, weather natural or manmade by the Department of Fish and Game if wanted by them.
 

A. The Department of Fish and Game should track down and select at least one different Salmon Spawning Pool each year for three years and implant them with X amount of the stated salmon eggs. These spawning pools should be checked for seven years each; to ascertain the effectiveness of implanting salmon eggs directly into the environment, compared to current measures  used by the State of New Hampshire.

 

     I declare it would be only Natural, Just and Proper to instill these accords specifically and particularly upon the Merrimack River Watershed, to cost effectively restore New Hampshire’s Natural Eco System in Symbiosis with Human Culture, Commerce and Society in this Great Free State of New Hampshire.
