Please Help Support the Proposed Project to Eradicate Invasive Smallmouth Bass from the Greater Miramichi River System
As you know, smallmouth bass are serious competitors with, and predators of juvenile Atlantic salmon. Unless bass are eliminated from Miramichi Lake, where they were illegally introduced, and from a short section of the Southwest Miramichi River into which they migrated, they will become established throughout much of the remainder of the Greater Miramichi watershed.
We are accepting donations to support the North Shore Mic Mac District Council and Working Group partners to eradicate smallmouth bass from the range in which they presently exist in the Southwest Miramichi system. The funds will be used to purchase a Health Canada-approved piscicide and necessary equipment, and to implement the eradication. The results and ecosystem recovery will be monitored for 5 years. These donations are tax deductible. Unless you specifically request it, your name will be published on this site as a donor, but the amount you contribute will not.
Until we get an electronic funding system in place, cheques to the NB Salmon Council can be sent to:
Reasons for Support of CAST’s Smolt-to-Adult-Supplementation Project
The following explains in detail why we support a continuation of the Coalition for Atlantic Salmon Tomorrow’s (CAST’s) Smolt-to-Adult Supplementation (SAS) program on the Northwest / Little Southwest Miramichi River systems.
We, the New Brunswick Salmon Council (NBSC) have grave concerns about the progressively decreasing wild Atlantic salmon population of the greater Miramichi system, particularly of the sub-populations of the Northwest (NW) and Little Southwest (LSW) Miramichi drainages.
