Helping Atlantic Salmon on Quebec’s North Shore

2016-2017

For six weeks, Quebec Iron Ore carried out a major operation to clear a passage blocked by a rocky mass in the Mistassini River. The goal was to encourage Atlantic salmon to come back to the river and to give them access to upstream habitats.

The results? Improved reproductive conditions for this fish, classified a species of concern in the sector, and a significant increase in its average population.
