Disabled mine is transformed into a fish pond in Canada

Our McMillian quarry, in Aberfoyle, Canada, turned into a fish pond and a place of opportunities for the local community. The process began after the deactivation of the quarry, which came into recovery process to gain new utility as soon as it has been disabled.  The rains have collaborated with our work, filling the mine with storm water and making it a great place for fish farming, a practice widely used in rural properties.

In partnership with AgriMarine, company specialized in pisciculture on the West Coast of the country, a pond was built inside the mine, for fishes of the rainbow trout species. All the work has been done by the local community that won an excellent opportunity to gain income from the commercialization of fish.

The fish-farming also brought other opportunities to the community. The next step of the project foresee the use of the organic matter eliminated by the fish as agricultural inputs, since the material is ideal for correcting soil acidity.
