The Vianney-Legendre Fishway provides a route for many fish species, some at risk, to navigate over the Saint-Ours dam and reach their spawning and feeding grounds. It was built in the spring of 2001. This is a concrete measure to preserve biodiversity and maintain wild fish populations at viable levels.
