Contentious salmon stocking plan can't happen without First Nations support: scientist

A University of New Brunswick scientist working on a contentious Miramichi salmon stocking program admits it cannot proceed without backing of First Nations groups. And there appears little likelihood of that happening, with Eel Ground Chief George Ginnish calling it a "non-starter." CAST, which stands for Collaboration for Atlantic Salmon Tomorrow, is a New Brunswick registered company chaired by James Irving, co-CEO of J.D. Irving Ltd., Glenn Cooke of Cooke Aquaculture and Saint John businessman Brian Moore.
