Return of the Gentle Giants: Huron-Erie Corridor Fish Habitat Restoration

The St. Clair River, Lake St. Clair and the Detroit River, also known as the Huron-Erie Corridor, are the international waters that connect Lake Huron to Lake Erie. Environmental changes in the Corridor over time have resulted in a loss of habitat for fish and other organisms. This video is focusing on the successful St. Clair River fish habitat restoration project and the science and collaboration that made it a success! The Huron-Erie Corridor is the epicenter of fish populations and fish habitat restoration in the Central Great Lakes. The fish spawning habitat restoration successes in these connecting channels can have positive impacts on Lakes Erie and Huron as well as the entire Great Lakes basin. The Huron-Erie Corridor Initiative partners will continue to work together to manage, restore, enhance, and protect the living resources and their habitats in these connecting waterways.
