Cumulative Effects on Salmon and Salmon Habitat

A cumulative effects collaborative research planning hybrid workshop was held on Tuesday, March 15th. The Gespe’gewqaq Mi’gmaq Resource Council hosted the workshop at the Quality Inn in Campbellton, NB. The goal of the workshop was to focus on cumulative effects on salmon and salmon habitat. The workshop brought together groups from the Matapedia-Restigouche Watershed Organization, Department of Fisheries and Oceans Gulf Region, Canada forest Service-Atlantic Forestry Center and the Atlantic Policy Congress to share their expertise on this topic. GMRC Director of Research Carole-Anne Gillis, said “as we work towards improving Atlantic salmon habitat in our region, GMRC is leading the collaborative efforts to build a cumulative effects framework. This is an amazing bottom up approach that is well adapted and informed by our communities and local groups. We know this work will be useful, relevant and readily applicable to our habitat restoration strategy.” GMRC would like to thank the participants for taking part in this event.
