Four cold-water projects now complete

The MSA has just completed important habitat enhancement work to the salmon holding pools found at the mouths of Doak Brook and Indiantown Brook on the Southwest Miramichi, Pat’s Brook on the Northwest Miramichi and Otter Brook on the Little Southwest Miramichi. Work involved enhancing flow, direction and mixing of cold brook water with warmer river water, thereby enhancing the thermal relief and protection each holding pool provides to adult and juvenile fish during prolonged periods of life-threatening low warm water. Additional details and photos related to these important habitat enhancement projects will be featured in the upcoming October issue of the MSA SalmonLetter.
