We have moved the smolt wheel approximately 1 km downstream on the Stewiacke River to the following coordinates 477,481 mE; 5,001,018 mN. The previous site did not have enough water flow/velocity to allow the wheel to operate properly so we decided to move it. Stay tuned as we continue to keep you updated on our adventures with the smolt wheel!
Did you know?
A portion of the collected salmon will be retained in the Live-gene-bank program to maintain the genetic lineage of the Stewiacke River Atlantic Salmon.
The rest are sampled for weight, length, and genetics before they are released back to the river to continue their journey!
