Taiwan's critically endangered Formosan landlocked salmon may be making a
comeback

Shei-Pa National Park says the population of the endemic subspecies has
surpassed 10,000 for the first time on record.

The park's first survey of the species in 1992 showed it dangerously close to
extinction, with a single population of around 200 fish remaining in the
Dajiawan River basin.

A conservation plan, which included a four-year breeding program was kicked
off in the year 2000.

The park's 2019 survey estimated the species' total number at 10,532.

Over the next two years, the park said it hopes to further stabilize the
salmon's numbers by establishing populations in two other streams.
