In the first of the following reports, Principal Investigator Philip Hulbert presents the findings of the three-year survey of the Mattawamkeag River. In the second report, Mr. Hulbert presents data collected prior to and following the application of the insecticide SEVIN to suppress the spruce budworm in the Mattawamkeag drainage area.
It should be apparent to the reader that the following reports are not the last words on the statues of the Mattawamkeag as a candidate for restoration of sea-run Atlantic Salmon. The survey represents a major and important step, but only a step, in the lengthy and continuing process of evaluating a river's potential for supporting restored populations of the very fastidious salmon. The investigators believe that the continuing evaluation must be funded and accomplished lest the problems of restoring sea-run salmon be over simplified in the eyes of administrators, managers, and the public.
