TRINITÉ RIVER HISTORY
In Mai 1976 DOMTAR ended a 50 year exclusive right's to the territory and finally gave away it's right's after countless negotiation and protestation from the Baie-Trinité citizens who wanted more participation in the management of it's local salmon rivers resources and it's fauna The MTCP transferred all properties, installations ans exclusives rights to the newly formed Société d'Aménagement de Baie-Trinité inc. This territory exclusive rights transfer was a Québec fist, it paved the way to many other Québec territory to be transferred to local communities. In 1978 a 356 square kilometer wildlife and fishing reserved was created which merged both Grande Trinité River and Petite Trinité River in the same management reserve
After ward this territory was registered as a ZEC (CONTROLLED EXPLOITATION ZONE), then finally in 1982 based on it's geographical location the Trinité River was named the north shore index river, having sush a classification this meant all other north shore rivers would be compared to the Trinité river to better evaluate its health. Biologist from the MRNF now would have the Trinité river fish way and could use its resource as a tool for research to better understand the atlantic salmon. This fish way helps the SABT in better evaluating its salmon and sea run brook trout runs.
