The Inner Bay of Fundy Atlantic Salmon (IboF) is a critically endangered species. Its decline has resulted from the loss and degradation of crucial habitat both freshwater and marine. In addition, for reasons that are still unknown, very few salmon are returning from the sea to spawn in their home rivers in the inner Bay of Fundy. Parks Canada and its partners are trying to solve this mystery.
