2022 Cold Water Project at Black Brook

The Miramichi Salmon Association recognizes the important role that cold water refuge plays in Atlantic Salmon conservation. In 2022, the MSA teamed up with Dr. O’Sullivan and Black Brook Salmon Club to restore a critical cold water site.

Cold water refuge allows Atlantic Salmon to rest during stressful warm water conditions, particularly in the face of climate change. To learn more about this important project, please watch the video below.
