A proposed pulp mill would destroy the Kam River 's budding salmon fishery, a Lakehead University biologist says. The development proposed by the South Korean company Shin Ho - designed to produce up to 150,000 tonnes of market pulp a year and employ 88 people - would have difficulty getting approval if it should be forced into a full environmental assessment hearing, Walter Momot said Friday in Thunder Bay. The mill would be releasing effluent into the river just upstream from the prime spawning area for the recently introduced salmon fishery, Mr. Momot said.

Biologist Paul McKee, a consultant for Shin Ho, says the $150-million mill would use the newest processes to eliminate most of the toxicity.
