Recipient: Cheticamp River Salmon Association
Approved Amount: $7,500

This is the third and possibly final phase of a collaborative effort between the CRSA and Parks Canada to improve fish passage, increase access to important upstream habitat, and restore impacted habitat on the lower Cheticamp River. Phase III involves installing instream structures according to the recommendations of Charles MacInnis (Lead biologist consultant on the project) at two new work sites and carrying out necessary work to maintain and improve previous restoration structures.
