Bangor Daily News: On a chilly, overcast morning, Maria McMorrow walked along Seavey Brook in Wesley [Maine], carrying a pair of plastic 5-gallon buckets containing juvenile salmon.

McMorrow, an Island Fellow through AmeriCorps and the Island Institute, and 2 other staff members of the Downeast Salmon Federation, Jacob van de Sande and Kyle Winslow, had loaded the salmon parr at the federation’s hatchery on the East Machias River in East Machias into tanks aboard a pair of pickup trucks. They had driven to a remote location along the brook, several miles down a gravel road. They used a dip net to remove the juvenile salmon from the tanks and put them into buckets then carried the buckets along the bank to stock the parr into the brook.
