A Maritime biologist is launching a study to figure out whether a goopy algae is affecting juvenile Atlantic salmon. Josh Kurek at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick says the algae (called Didymo) is spreading through parts of eastern Canada. And it's in some of the same rivers as the wild salmon populations. (Kurek says the juvenile fish feed on invertebrates that live in the algae mats that can blanket riverbeds.)
