Recipient: Raincoast Conservation Foundation

Project goal: The aim of this project is to improve habitat connectivity and natural processes on the banks of the Fraser estuary. This will be achieved by addressing historically constructed flow control structures that present physical barriers to estuarine processes and limit juvenile fish migration.

These activities will directly benefit juvenile chinook and other Pacific salmon species, as well as many other species which rely on the estuary. Better access throughout the Fraser estuary will potentially improve early marine survival for Pacific salmon.

Time frame: 5 years

Fund allocation: $2,658,217

Partners:

  • Ducks Unlimited
