I will try. That number of $270 million is in a Gardner Pinfold study as well, which I understand the industry commissioned. So hopefully we're comparing apples with apples.
I think I mentioned that within Quebec and the four Atlantic provinces there are more than 1,000 rivers that once were home to wild Atlantic salmon runs. In New Brunswick, as an example, there are over 100 wild salmon rivers. Over half of them are closed because there were too few wild fish coming back to those rivers. Actually, the Atlantic Salmon Federation supports those closures. In the big area of the Bay of Fundy, there are 40 rivers on the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia sides of the Bay of Fundy that are all closed. That's where the aquaculture industry is. When rivers like the Saint John, the Tobique, the Nashwaak, and those 40 rivers in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are closed, you are closing down the recreational fishing industry: lodges, outfitters, guides, and tackle manufacturers. There's a cost to that.
The Atlantic Salmon Federation is very hopeful. While the recreational fishing industry in 2010 was worth $130 million, we believe there's much greater value in a restored fishery. Once we can get those rivers opened again, with healthy salmon runs, and we see.... The Saint John River, in my lifetime, and I'm not that old—I don't feel that old, anyway—was the second most productive Atlantic salmon river in North America, next only to the Miramichi. It's closed.
I hope that answers your question.
