Fish Habitat Management Plans
“A Fish Habitat Plan for Lake St. Francis: Existing Conditions and Opportunities for Enhancement”was completed in 2006 that documents the degraded and known critical and sensitive habitat areas in the St. Lawrence River portion of the St. Lawrence River Area of Concern. The plan contains recommendations on strategies to encourage the net increase in quality and quantity of littoral zone fish habitat, many of which are in development and underway.
The preparation of a Fish Habitat Management Plan for the tributaries to the St. Lawrence River Area of Concern has commenced under the direction of a steering committee with representation from the Ministry of Natural Resources, St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Raisin Region Conservation Authority and Environment Canada. Information gaps have been identified and the collection of data is underway for the anticipated final completion of the plan by 2010.
“A Fish Habitat Plan for Lake St. Francis: Existing Conditions and Opportunities for Enhancement” is available for download.
