Fish and Mussel

A fish and mussel study focuses on fish and mussels and where they live. The study will help HFR planners to protect fish and mussels while building and operating the new railway.

Where are fish and mussel studies taking place?

The 2024 fish and mussel studies will take place along sections of existing railway routes in Ontario, from Twin Elm up to Ottawa and down to Vars, and in Québec near Laval to the 740 highway in Québec City.

Why study fish and mussels?

All fish, mussels and their habitats are protected under the federal Fisheries Act. Understanding fish and mussel habitats, and the other species that depend on them, is important for their protection. These studies will describe the type of fish, mussels and their habitats and determine baseline conditions for future studies.
