Discovery at the Fishway

Sunday April 7

10 a.m. and 2 p.m.; RBG Fishway

Park at Princess Point and walk the Waterfront Trail to RBG’s Fishway! Watch RBG ecologists at work as they assist migrating fish to their spawning grounds in Cootes Paradise Marsh.

The Fishway is located at the mouth of the Desjardins Canal - where Cootes Paradise Marsh flows into Hamilton Harbour. Its design keeps invasive Common Carp out of the marsh, but allows water and native fish to move between the two bodies of water. The Fishway is one of several remediation projects in place to restore the marsh to a healthy wetland community.
