Atlantic salmon expansion initiative
TUCPCC wishes to provide improved access to habitat in the upper reaches of Caruthers Brook on both branches of the Knutsford Tributary. This area is very alder choked holding sediment along the stream banks causing a disconnect of the natural stream characteristic sequence. TUCPCC plans to field a work crew in this x km of stream to remove the alders and install brush mats to restore fish access to these branches and restore proper stream form and function. The group is also plant five hundred native trees and shrubs within the riparian zone in these sections of stream. We are partnering with Lennox Island First Nations to provide field training for two band members one day a week for the sixteen-week duration of the project. This project is part of a larger four-year initiative to increase habitat for Atlantic Salmon, monitor movements through out the systems by tagging and installing monitoring equipment, monitor water quality and quantity in the various systems, and improve riparian health through tree planting and other recommended practices.
