Restigouche Sam

8.5 meter stainless steel statue of the Atlantic Salmon

Campbellton is the undisputed capital of salmon country. Sport fishing enthusiasts literally travels from around the world to this part of New Brunswick in search of Atlantic Salmon. To honour the king of game fish, the City erected an 8.5 meter stainless steel sculpture on its waterfront and lovingly adopted him as "Restigouche Sam". In the summer months, Salmon Plaza provides a picturesque backdrop for many photo opportunities and serves as an ideal spot for activity during the annual Salmon Festival (usually held the last week in June).
