The Adurt Brook Restoration Project (2018) has improved access and restoration of habitat for Atlantic salmon. Bridge upgrades and component replacement over Adurt Brook has allowed for safe crossing for ATV’s, which will reduce sediment and erosion from adversely impacting critical salmon habitat – ATV’s going through the brook.
In addition, three abandoned beaver dams upstream from the ATV bridge, which are causing blockages in Adurt Brook, have been removed/notched to allow the brook to return to its natural flow.

The Adurt Brook Restoration Project re-established access and restored habitat for Atlantic salmon in the Indian Bay Watershed through the removal of approximately 9 beaver dams. Adurt Brook is a tributary on Indian Bay River which supports a healthy run of Atlantic salmon that will greatly benefit from increased access to habitat upstream.
In addition, this project also addressed streambank erosion through the planting of seedlings in the riparian zone. These combined activities improved salmon habitat and restored connectivity in the watershed.
