About Portage

Once again this year, Portage Saint-Malachie is working with the Etchemin River Safeguarding Group on a project to introduce new salmon into the Etchemin River, which flows next to the rehabilitation centre.

The girls’ community are raising the young fish in a special culture tank at the centre. They will supervise the eggs’ progress until they grow into full-fledged minnows, at which time they will be released into the river.

Throughout the project, residents are following lessons on river ecosystem protection and are developing a better appreciation for the surrounding environment.
