On February 15, 2017, the Fundy Model Forest, in partnership with the Atlantic Salmon Federation and the Nova Scotia Adopt-a-Stream, hosted the Inner Bay of Fundy Atlantic Salmon Forum and Workshop. The event was held in Sackville New Brunswick. Fifty representatives of First Nation community groups, watershed groups and government attended the workshop.
Workshop Overview: There are many groups working in Atlantic Canada to restore aquatic habitat for wild Atlantic Salmon populations in the Inner Bay of Fundy region and beyond. Often, there is a fragmented approach to restoration efforts due to limited funding and human resources with little collaboration between groups with similar restoration goals. In this workshop, the Atlantic Salmon Federation’s Recovery Strategy will introduce a holistic approach to identifying and addressing root-cause issues facing wild Atlantic salmon in their freshwater ecosystems. The workshop will promote understanding your respective watersheds and sharing strategies that work to address fundamental issues and achieve collective restoration goals.
