Promote awareness of Atlantic salmon conservation by promoting the Atlantic salmon protection charter: Phase 2 of the ATSSA project.

Recipient: Association de la rivière Petit-Saguenay
Approved Amount: $6,000
Year Approved: 2014

In 2012, the ARPS innovated with the help of different partners in developing the Atlantic salmon survival rate enhancement in Petit Saguenay River. The purpose of this program was to educate and increase the awareness of salmon fishermen about the appropriate release technique and also to develop an Atlantic salmon protection charter. To understand all the impacts of the Charter, data had to be compiled. In addition, awareness initiatives for the clientele and its participation in the project are necessary. The ARPS will work towards the renewal of its ATSSA program.
