File application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document Rapid Assessment Protocol for Aquatic Passability of Tidally Influenced Road-Stream Crossings
There is growing interest among conservation practitioners to have a method to assess tidally influenced crossings for their potential as barriers to aquatic organism passage. Protocols designed for freshwater streams will not adequately address the passage challenges of bi-directional flow and widely variable depth and velocity of tidally influenced systems. Diadromous fish must be able to overcome the enhanced water velocities associated with tidal restrictions to reach upstream spawning habitat. This project will build on the existing North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative's protocol, database and scoring procedures to extend the applicability of this region-wide program to road-stream crossings in tidally influenced settings.

File text/texmacs The 2017 Coastal Resilience Grants
The objective of the NOAA Coastal Resilience Grants program, jointly administered by NOAA's National Ocean Service and National Marine Fisheries Service, is to implement projects that build resilient U.S. coastal communities, economies and ecosystems. Resilience is the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and successfully adapt. This program is intended to build resilience by reducing the risk to coastal communities, economies and ecosystems from extreme weather events and climate-related hazards. Projects that build resilience include activities that protect life and property, safeguard people and infrastructure, strengthen the economy, and/or conserve and restore coastal and marine resources.

Maine Department of Marine Resources, Division of Sea-Run Fisheries and Habitat staff conduct routine monitoring of the abundance and status of adult Atlantic salmon and other fish species in many Maine rivers. Staff operate traps at fishways and barrier weirs to monitor fish returns to the Penobscot (Milford Dam), and Narraguagus (Cherryfield Dam); Great Lakes Hydro, America operates a trap at Weldon Dam in the upper Penobscot drainage, Pennsylvania Power and Light operates a trap at the Ellsworth Dam on the Union River; Florida Power and Light operates traps and lifts at two hydroelectric projects on the Saco River, Maine DMR operates one on the Androscoggin River, and the St. Croix Waterway Commission operates a trap at the Milltown Dam on the St. Croix River. These fish counting facilities are typically operated from May through early November each year. Staff update the statewide trap catch summary weekly or more often during the peak of the fish migrations. The statewide trap catch table includes counts of sea-run salmon captured on Maine rivers and salmon removed from the river as broodstock for restocking of Maine rivers and DOES NOT include captures of aquaculture strays or captive reared adult salmon released from Federal hatcheries.
