North East Mabou Habitat Restoration. Year 2 of a 3 year commitment
Recipient: Inverness South Anglers Committee
Approved Amount: $7,500 Year Approved: 2012
This project is working to address the absence of Atlantic salmon in an area once thriving with salmon. Numerous debris blockages and dams have been cleared and allowed to flush the accumulated silt and sedimentation. Six structures (primarily diggers logs) were installed during the 2012 season in the main river, and additional debris jams were cleared upstream in the tributaries. Upon surveying the main North East River in early December, there were evidence of a few redds, evidence that there were some returning salmon to the newly created spawning habitat.
