South Rights River Fish Passage Remediation

The South Rights River is very productive and contains some of the highest quality water in Nova Scotia. However, fish passage issues near the bottom of the South Rights River caused by abandoned municipal drinking water lines was blocking the upstream migration of sea trout and salmon. ARA in partnership with the NS Salmon Association obtained funding in 2018 to remove remnant water lines and thus restored fish passage to over 40 square kilometers of pristine fish habitat.
