New Method Could Help to Restore Maine Streams
Poorly designed culverts are blocking the natural movement of brook trout and other aquatic wildlife on thousands of streams across Maine. Restoring free access to habitat is essential to protecting populations of wild brook trout. Maine has more than 80% of the remaining U.S. native stocks of brook trout, so local efforts are significant nationally. A project just completed by Downeast Lakes Land Trust and partners, with support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has potential to be a model for cost-effective restoration of aquatic habitat.
