As a result, the salmon are being restored to a natural, self-sustaining population as outlined in the Saco River Strategic Plan prepared by federal and state fishery agencies. SRSC operates a hatchery, monitors the success of the restoration effort and supplies education and internships.

Annual support for the Saco River Salmon Club for nearly a decade has helped the SRSC show demonstrable improvement in species protection.
