Atlantic salmon – Kouchibouguacis Watershed (education, egg incubation, restoration and monitoring) 2018

Recipient: Friends of the Kouchibouguacis Inc.
Approved Amount: $18,000

This project covers a number of components that will benefit the Atlantic salmon population and its habitat in the Kouchibouguac and Kouchibouguacis River watershed. Different monitoring methods will be used to collect data on salmon (and other fish species) population, available habitat, migration, age, along with water quality and environmental parameters. Salmon eggs/milt will be collected for incubation purposes. Different means will be applied towards educational efforts; kiosk sessions will be set up at intricate locations for targeting residents from the surrounding communities. In-class presentations, outdoors activity and field trips will be offered to the students from the local schools. Photos will be taken and the ASCF will be recognized throughout the entity of the project.
