Video Update: Blackstone Brook Culvert Project Complete!

In 2015, Trout and Salmon Foundation helped Atlantic Salmon Federation fund the Blackstone Brook Fish Passage Project that reconnects an extensive portion of the Blackstone Brook drainage with the main stem of the Piscataquis River in central Maine by removing a gory 12×20 concrete box culvert and replacing it with a 42 foot steel bridge.
Poor fish passage at dams, culverts and other obstructions have been identified as one of the major impediments to recovery of Atlantic Salmon in Maine. Blackstone Brook is designated as critical habitat for Atlantic Salmon and, above the project site, it has more than 9 miles of habitat identified as high-quality Atlantic Salmon and brook trout rearing habitat.
