Restoration of Atlantic Salmon Habitat in the East River Watershed, Pictou County

Recipient: Pictou County Rivers Association
Approved Amount: $8,500

The PCRA will examine the East River Pictou County with the intent of developing a salmon habitat conservation watershed management plan. The PCRA will survey 6 to 8 of the major tributaries of the river to identify fish habitat restoration needs, impediments to fish passage and water quality. This information will be used to prioritize fish habitat issues and to develop a multi-year strategy to address these. Our river restoration crew will begin installing in-stream structures in Glencoe Brook and Archibald Brook in 2016 as part of this project.
