Conservation and improvement plan of Atlantic salmon of Petite rivière Cascapédia

Recipient: Association des Pêcheurs Sportifs des Rivières Cascapédia
Approved Amount: $6,000
Year Approved: 2018

Through the conservation and improvement plan for Atlantic salmon of Petite rivière Cascapédia, all studies, documents and writings on this river will be compiled and analyzed to draw a picture of the status of salmon population and its habitat. The analysis will help identify specific issues and problems of the river. This plan which will be structured based on logical information, issues and recommendations will act as a tool for decision-making by our organization. This project is critical to ensure management directions.
With this project, we wish to consolidate our relationship with private fishing operators, but more specifically create new relationships with the MicMac community (Gesgapegiag). We are confident that cooperation between our organization and these organizations will facilitate dialogue and good relationships which will be beneficial for salmon conservation.
