The Stoney Creek Fisheries Enhancement Project supports the rehabilitation of streams that flow through the Nechako agricultural belt. Stoney Creek, which is the only known spawning bed of the Nechako White Sturgeon, flows into the Nechako River. This project will include removal of old car bodies from the mouth of the stream, replanting the Riparian zone and enhancementof the fish habitat.
“This funding from Coastal GasLink will help us start the important planning and prescription part of the recovery of Stoney Creek. We are very grateful for the help and look forward to developing a community based strategy and a healthier stream for future generations.”
