Keji fish watch

Kejimkujik National Park welcomes 40,000 visitors a year, but there is one visitor Parks Canada desperately wants to keep out: invasive fish that are now just outside the park boundary.

Over the next three years Parks Canada will spend $797,000 to try to stop invasive small mouth bass and chain pickerel from getting into the park.  It’s the last large watershed in southern Nova Scotia still free of the predators.

Nearly 50 per cent of Nova Scotia’s watersheds now contain one or both of the invasive species.
