Culverts as barriers to Atlantic salmon migration

Recipient: St. Mary’s River Association
Approved Amount: $7,500
Year Approved: 2009

A lead researcher, in collaboration with a variety of other field staff (9 other assistants in total) assessed 99 culverts as barriers to fish migration in the St. Mary’s River. In the proposal we were also to priorize those culverts and design a restoration plan. The final report will include barriers of all forms (waterfalls, debris jams, beaver dams, and culverts) as an overall access restoration plan; culverts will form one part of this larger scheme.
