Fish ladder gives a lift to Atlantic salmon on Waugh’s River system, Nova Scotia
Published on April 12th, 2010
WEST EARLTOWN – The installation of a fish ladder in the Waugh River has enabled a volunteer committee to climb to the next step of a long-term commitment to improve fish habitat.
The North Colchester River Restoration Project committee has established a hatchery for Atlantic salmon to help boost the population.
“Now that we have the fish ladder at The Falls, fish will naturally come above the falls to spawn,” said Perry Swan, one of about a dozen dedicated volunteers assisting with the hatchery project. “Its location puts us about mid-point between the falls and the head water.”
