Streetsville, ON – Team members at the local Ardent Mills Flour Mill who are helping the Ministry of Natural Resources and Fishery (MNRF) protect the Credit River, designated as “sanctuary land” from poaching.

This important effort allows salmon to spawn every year and the Ministry to collect the eggs to restock the Lakes in Ontario.

“The flour mill, built in 1842 along the banks of the Credit River, provided a great location and also a significant water flow to power the mill until the late 1950s,” says Anthony Pracek, Ardent Mills Streetsville Plant Manager. “Today the Credit River provides beautiful scenery behind the mill, where the salmon spawn nearby, either below the dam or beyond the fish ladder.” | WATCH MORE
