Restoration and Enhancement of Atlantic Salmon Habitat in North Eastern PEI
The Wildlife Conservation Fund, administered by the Island Nature Trust, is a trust fund that provides funding for the protection and enhancement of wildlife and wildlife habitats on Prince Edward Island. This Fund is generated from the annual licence fees of anglers, hunters and trappers and from the sale of Conservation Licence Plates on PEI.
Project Description: A sediment by-pass pond will be installed to divert excess sediment from entering Cross River, preventing sediment from building up within the stream bed. Restoration and enhancement efforts will be conducted at Cross River, Priest Pond, and North Lake Creek to improve the passage of fish (primarily diadromous fish). This will involve trimming vegetation where appropriate and recording and removing blowdowns and blockages within the streams of these three river systems.
