Romaine River salmon restoration program
Recipient: Société saumon de la rivière Romaine
Approved Amount: $50,000 Year Approved: 2022
Created in 2011, after the construction of Hydro-Quebec dams on Romaine River, the mission of SSRR is to restore the salmon population of Romaine River and its main tributary Puyjalon (map 1). The targeted initiative is the annual stocking of fry. Since 2015, more than a million fry were stocked in these two rivers. A genetic follow up will, after the adult return, help collect scientific information on the salmon cycle.
Finally, the SSRR manages the Histoire du saumon program (of FQSA) in the schools of the Romaine River watershed.
We plan to stock between 150,000 and 250,000 fry annually from 2022 to 2024 and to continue to do so after depending on the remaining budgets.
