GMRC wins AAROM Excellence Award

The Gespe’gewaq Mi’gmaq Resource Council was recognized at the Fisheries Awards Banquet and Ceremony on March 31, 2022. The Atlantic Policy Congress of Chiefs and Secretariat (APC) presented GMRC as the first recipient of the AAROM Excellence Award for our work in Atlantic salmon research. GMRC is working on a number of projects that impact Atlantic salmon. Atlantic salmon population numbers have declined due to many factors. GMRC has taken a proactive approach to improving the habitat by replacing or remediating barriers to fish passage and restoring habitat connectivity, as well as the reduction of runoff from agricultural and industrial sources. GMRC Executive Director said, “After a challenging couple of years, it’s great that the team at GMRC has been recognized for their hard work. The Atlantic salmon is a culturally significant species to the Mi’gmaw and plays an important role in the region. We will continue to work every day trying to improve the habitat for the salmon and other species.”
