Management Committee Inc.
The Miramichi Watershed Management Committee
Inc. (MWMC) is an umbrella community orgamization made up of conservation groups, First Nations, individual companies,
outfitters and guiding associations from all over the Miramichi Region.
In 1997, operation of
the Miramichi Salmon Conservation Centre (in South Esk) was transferred from the Department of Fisheries
and Oceans to the MWMC, along with the responsibilty of enhancing salmon stocks in the Miramichi.
This has lead to the development of:
A salmon enhancement program that invites everyone to get involved in upholding the Miramichi River's reputation
as one of the best salmon rivers in the world.
will benefit from Miramichi Riverstock?
Those with a vested interest in the Miramichi River; outfitters, guides, anglers, fishing clubs, camp owners, and business
owners who are located near the river and receive business from these groups.
Business owners and individuals who are concerned about the current salmon situation and wish to contribute for personal or
Miramichi Riverstock invites individuals and businesses to participate in
salmon enhancement by making a financial contribution to stocking the Miramichi with young salmon.
What your Contribution will Give you…
To help you calculate
the benefits of your charitable donation, we estimate that a $150 contribution/order will put 1,000 wild salmon fry into the
river; $1000 will provide for release of 6,000 - 7,000 fry, the offspring from one large adult female salmon.
Every effort will be made to put fish in the specific area that you want to have stocked,
providing the area is not saturated with fingerlings.
Government protocols must be adhered
to, but any contribution will go directly toward putting young salmon in the water.
