Stream Bank Stabilization

Take a look at how bioengineering techniques are used to stabilize the banks both up and downstream of the Kalifornsky Beach Road culvert replacement project in Alaska. Replacing the existing 9 foot culvert with an 18 foot diameter culvert and reducing erosion and sedimentation through bioengineering will improve the stream benefiting native salmon.

Fisheries Program

Catch the April return of alewife to Bride Brook, outlet to Bride Lake, in East Lyme, Connecticut. High spring flow creates turbid water as thousands of herring migrate upstream to spawn. See how their spawning run has been made considerably easier this year by fish passage improvements.
