Habitat Improvement Project in West River

RJMI, in collaboration with Millbrook First Nation, Nova Scotia Salmon Association and Department of Fisheries & Oceans Canada, commenced a habitat improvement project in the West River estuary of Sheet Harbour. The Mi’kmaq Conservation Group fabricated 200 concrete “reef balls” and RJMI installed them in grids designed to act as reefs which encourage aquatic flora growth and provides habitat for fish and crustaceans.
