The Salmon Restoration Project is a community initiative of the Elsipogtog Miimag First Nations to work on restoring the salmon populations in the Richibucto River.

Negotiations with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans has resulted in an agreement that Elsipogtog First Nation, in collaboration with Biologists from Kouchibouguac National Park, would carry out field projects and management actions in support of the protection and restoration of the salmon population in the Richibucto River.

The main goal of this project is to conduct a scientific assessment of the fish stocks of the Richibucto River. Several objectives were defined so as to reach that goal.
