Yellow Fish Road™

Trout Unlimited Canada's Yellow Fish Road™ program is a nation-wide environmental education initiative.

The goal of the SSEA Yellow Fish Road™ program is to help Severn Sound area communities understand that pollutants such as dirt, oil, soapy water and chemicals that enter storm drains are washed untreated into rivers, lakes and streams, where they can negatively impact water quality and aquatic life.

Preventing pollutants from entering storm drains is critical to protecting and improving water quality and aquatic habitat. Through the Yellow Fish Road™ program, volunteer groups mark storm drains with yellow fish decals and distribute brochures to inform residents that anything that goes into the storm sewer system goes directly into local waterways.

Each year, the SSEA runs Yellow Fish Road™ between April and November, weather permitting. For more information or to register your group for a Yellow Fish Road™ drain marking event, contact:
