Atlantic Salmon Management Plan – Black River

Recipient: Miramichi River Environmental Assessment Committee
Approved Amount: $11,000
Year Approved: 2021

MREAC will prepare an Atlantic Salmon Conservation Strategy for Atlantic salmon on the Black River, Northumberland County, N.B. Leading into writing the plan, additional temperature monitoring, habitat assessment and land use mapping will be undertaken. Project research will inform MREAC of other available data sets pertinent to the plan.  Significant effort will be applied to current water temperature monitoring on the main branch and significant tributaries. Greater effort will be applied to explore habitat conditions. Electrofishing will establish the current status of juvenile salmonids on this watercourse.
