Salmon Tracking and Falls remediation Plan.

Recipient: Salmonid Association of Eastern Newfoundland
Approved Amount: $17,552
Year Approved: 2015

Salmonid Association of Eastern Newfoundland (SAEN) intends to procure the components for and commission a smolt fence, including a camera system to enumerate out-migrating smolts. We will transfer and tag 20 adult salmon from the Exploits River, transfer the salmon to Rennies River, where they will be tagged and tracked. SAEN has identified a barrier fall on the Virginia Tributary of Rennies River. We intend to commission a report to determine best methods for re-meditation and costs.
