At our office in St. Stephen we maintain a library covering topics within our mandate. Feel free to stop by and browse, or get in touch with us if you are looking for specific information. This section is currently under construction; please bear with us!
The SCIWC publishes reports and papers on a regular basis. To learn more, visit our Publications section.
The SCIWC has accumulated a vast amount of knowledge, resources, and materials. In this section, we have included links to relevant sites, provided access to data, documentation and reports, listed by category.
Culture and History
Alewives and anadromous fishThe SCIWC has collected a number of historical documents regarding alewives and other anadromous fish in the St. Croix River system. These documents are posted for public information; the SCIWC remains neutral on the ongoing dispute to re-open the St. Croix to alewives. There are numerous online resources providing information on alewives; those provided here are ones not readily available elsewhere. Additional documents, books and resources are available from our library.
