Shoal Harbour River is a 19km river flowing from Shoal Harbour Pond and Andrew’s Pond to the mouth of the River which opens to Random Sound in Lower Shoal Harbour in the Town of Clarenville.

In addition to being a great swimming area, the Shoal Harbour River is home to seven species of fish providing great fishing at various times throughout the year. Shoal Harbour River also feeds the new Water Treatment Plant that serves Clarenville’s 5500 residents and over 250 businesses.

Friends of Shoal Harbour River (FOSHR) is a non-profit community-based group of area residents committed to the awareness, protection and enhancement of the Shoal Harbour River. FOSHR was formed in 2008 to help ensure the sustainability of the River and help address problems such as poaching, habitat destruction and other threats to the fish species that inhabit the river system.
