River Salmon Association, founded in 2007, is a volunteer, not for profit
organization, dedicated to the conservation, protection and enhancement
of Atlantic salmon, trout and their habitat. An affiliate of
Atlantic Salmon Federation and the Nova Scotia Salmon Association, MRSA
has been active in the Non-Management Advisory Committee (DFO) and the
Recreational Fisheries Advisory Committee (Inland Fisheries).
In our first three years, much of the Association’s efforts centred
around the re-population of salmon and trout
populations. Our incubation box experiment in 2009
was carried out
in partnership with NS Adopt-A-Stream Program. In 2010 we
with our stocking/rearing initiatives, however, we will enter the next
phase to improve the water quality of the Medway River / Watershed.
A fund-raising effort has started towards the largest acid rain
mitigation project in NorthAmerican history to raise the pH level to
5.5 from Eel Lake in Harmony to the estuary in Mill Village.
