Salmon Restoration in Romaine River

Recipient: Société saumon de la rivière Romaine 
Approved Amount: $19,000

Created in 2011, following the building of Hydro-Quebec dams on Romaine River, the mission of the SSRR is to restore the salmon population of Romaine River and its main tributary the Puyjalon.  The targeted action is the annual release of fry. Since 2015, approximately 658,500 fry have been released in these two rivers. Genetic monitoring, upon the return of adults, will help collect scientific information on salmon life cycle. At the same time, the SSRR financed and took part in the development of a plan for food fishery with Innus of Ekuanitshit community.  SSRR hopes to release approximately 200 000 fry annually.
