Over the last few years, there grew a need for a manual that would encompass watershed management and fish habitat conservation, protection and enhancement. While DFO (Gulf Region) had already produced “A Guide for Fish Habitat Improvement in New Brunswick” in the early 1990’s, it was clear that communities needed to know more than just how to improve fish habitat. Today’s citizens are more aware of environmental issues and they need clear directions on how to mitigate impacts in their watersheds. This, in turn, provides them with the opportunity to bring about positive changes to the environment and eventually, fish habitat.
This manual will help educate citizens on various aspects related to watershed management:
DFO (Gulf Region) staff is proud of this manual and hopes it will be useful in helping communities achieve a sustainable management of their watershed.
