Watershed assessing and planning in Charles Brook

Recipient: Memorial University of Newfoundland (Purchase)
Approved Amount: $18,089 for 2023 (1st year of a 2-year project, total: $25,679)
Year Approved: 2023

The Charles Brook watershed in the Bay of Exploits will be surveyed for the first known time. Information on access, barriers to migration, salmon presence/absence, habitat characteristics, and water temperatures will enable watershed planning. Collected genetic tissue can be used by DFO to fill in large gaps from the northeast coast on genetic survey work on Newfoundland rivers.
