Project Summary:

The purpose of this project is to improve on Atlantic Salmon habitat and it’s wild population by addressing blockages to fish passage and migration, and by helping to collect broodstock for the Abegweit Biodiversity Enhancement Hatchery for future fish releases in the St Peter’s Bay area.

List of Goals:

1. Remove problem beavers in vital Atlantic Salmon and Brook Trout spawning areas.
2. Create and improve wildlife habitat by notching in-active beaver dams so fish can move throughout the river systems.
3. Help the Abegweit Biodiversity Enhancement Hatchery collect Atlantic Salmon and Brook Trout broodstock.
4. Complete redd surveys throughout the St Peter’s Bay area including the Morell River, St Peter’s River and Bristol Creek.
