We’ll be taping a Wildfire TV show next Wednesday with Pat Sirois, Director of Maine’s Sustainable Forestry Initiative, to discuss his exciting Fisheries Improvement Network. Among his many projects, Pat is leading the way to better culvert installations that allow fish passage. That is one of the biggest things that can be done to improve fisheries in our state. Tens of thousands of culverts now block fish from getting to their spawning grounds.
While you wait for this Wildfire show to air, you can check out a ten minute video that delivers FIN’s message about the need for improved fish passage and upgraded stream crossings. Please bring the video to the attention of anyone in your area who is involved in road work that involves culverts and stream crossings. You will find it here: www.sfimaine.org.
