Salmonid Association of Eastern Newfoundland announces completion of Salmon Spawning Bed Project on Rennies River.
A ceremony will be held Thursday Aug 21st 2:30pm at the site (bridge on O’Leary Avenue beside the Dollarama Store) to officially announce completion of the project and to thank our community partners who supported and collaborated on the project. They include the Recreational Fishery Conservation Partnership Program, the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation, AMEC, Conservation Corps of Newfoundland and Labrador, TD Friends of the Environment Fund and RBC Bluewater Fund.
In 2012 the Salmonid Association of Eastern Newfoundland (SAEN) commenced a five year experimental project to reintroduce wild Atlantic Salmon to the Rennies River Watershed. As a result of volunteer efforts thousands of fertilized eggs have been planted. This city river now hosts two year classes of juvenile wild Atlantic Salmon. Electrofishing results confirm that the fish are in good shape and are establishing and occupying territories throughout the upper reaches of the watershed. In anticipation of adults returning to spawn in future years SAEN has now completed a project located downstream from the bridge on O’Leary Avenue. This is an area that was encroached upon by parking lots on both the east and west banks. Seven low head dams have been installed and the pools have been filled with over 35 tons of spawning stone. In addition the barren, rocky east and west banks have been enriched with topsoil and plantings of native species of grasses, shrubs and trees. These plantings will provide root systems to prevent bank erosion and will also provide a protective canopy to protect against summer sun and overhead predation.
We hope you can join us and help us in informing the general public on this exciting milestone in the re-introduction of Atlantic Salmon to the Rennies River.
