Restoring Stream Habitat Connectivity in WB Machias, Maine

The primary threat to brook trout in the WB Machias River is associated with the aging road network. Project SHARE and the MEFRO have recently completed a basin wide stream-road crossing and fisheries assessment in the WB Machias River. There are 41 fish bearing road crossings in the subbasin that limit aquatic habitat connectivity. To date, six barrier removals / renovations have been completed. This project will remove another six barriers in the WB Machias in Maine.
