Project Description

Lake Ontario Salmon Restoration Project

September 2013

Ontario Federation of Anglers & Hunters

* Granted $10,000 for the Lake Ontario Atlantic Salmon Restoration project (LOASRP)

Project objectives:

To assist in partnership with TD FEF in the delivery of a minimum of 10 cold-water stream habitat restoration projects for Atlantic Salmon on Cobourg Brook, Duffins Creek, Bronte Creek, and the Humber and Credit Rivers. The LOASRP  benefits all cold-water fish in the streams by decreasing temperature, stabilising stream banks (preventing erosion) and opening up migration routes. Over 5,000 native trees and shrubs will be planted to create a vegetated buffer for the creeks to protect them from urban parks and roads.
