Diving amid Thousand Islands

Multi-coloured fish can be seen at the foot of the Thousand Islands Bridge, which links Ontario and the United States, running from Ivy Lea to Hill Island.

  • American eel, a great traveller

    Juvenile American eels.

    These fish can live in freshwater for many years before leaving to spawn in saltwater.

    From the St. Lawrence River, American eels travel thousands of kilometers to the Sargasso Sea, located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of North America.

    Large numbers of young eels drift with the ocean currents for one year, and then reaching shore migrate inland into rivers, streams and lakes.

  • Sunfish, a swimming rainbow

    Sunfish swimming.

    This freshwater fish is one of the St. Lawrence’s most colourful! With the orange, yellow, blue and emerald green spots and lines on its brownish olive body, it’s charming to behold.

    In the breeding season, the male becomes even more flamboyant and also very aggressive. He builds the nest and defends it against predators.
