Atlantic salmon conservation plan for Madeleine River

Recipient: Société de gestion de la rivière Madeleine 
Approved Amount: $6,000
Year Approved: 2020

The development of an Atlantic salmon conservation plan for Madeleine River will enable SGRM to gather and analyze all studies, documents and articles about the river in order to get an image of the state of the salmon population and its habitat.  This analysis will identify problems, information gaps and river-specific issues. The conservation plan will be used in future decision-making and recommendations will be prioritized. Three thermographs will also be installed for real time monitoring of the river temperature during the summer of 2020. Results will be available in time for the drafting of the conservation plan and will contribute to observations and recommendations.
