Patterns of fishing gear in areas of the Bay of Fundy and southwest Scotian Shelf frequented by North Atlantic right whales( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

North Atlantic right whales (Eubalaena glacialis) are among the most critically endangered cetacean species in the world. This report has identified the different gear types and fisheries that right whales encounter in Scotia-Fundy region, as well as the potential they pose for entanglement. Commercial landings data for the time series between 1999 and 2005 inclusive were used to assess the spatial and temporal distribution of fishing activity. These fishery distributions were compared to the patterns of right whale aggregation in Scotia-Fundy waters in order to estimate the potential for right whale/gear interaction among the different gear types/fisheries over time and space.--Document
Phytoplankton early warning approaches for salmon farmers in southwestern New Brunswick : aquaculture collaborative research and development program : final project report( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This project investigated the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of several potential early warning approaches for harmful algal blooms at salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick (SWNB). The components of this 3-yr project included: training farm personnel on the sampling, identification, and counting of harmful algal species; implementation of high frequency phytoplankton monitoring by farm staff at selected salmon farms; retrospective statistical analyses of existing monitoring data; laboratory experiments to determine threshold concentrations of selected harmful algae which can cause problems for farmed salon; use of a water circulation model to predict the movements of blooms which may affect salmon farms; evaluation of the effectiveness of a light sensor array for bloom detection; and evaluation of the usefulness of satellite imagery for bloom detection."--Document
An ecosystem framework for the management of Musquash Estuary Marine Protected Area by Rabindra Singh( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents an ecosystem framework for the management of Musquash Estuary Marine Protected Area (MPA). The Musquash Planning Group (later called the Musquash Advisory Committee) identified specific goals and objectives for the MPA. These objectives were used in further defining specific ecosystem objectives for the MPA based on the national ecosystem objectives developed by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). The Musquash ecosystem objectives, like the national ecosystem objectives, cover three broad categories - biodiversity, productivity and habitat. In defining these objectives (and their sub-objectives) the approach was to look at the present and allowed human activities within the MPA and to develop operational strategies that would target the possible impacts of those activities. The framework further points to the possible performance indicators that can be used to monitor how well those objectives are being met. This report provides a summary of the relevant federal and provincial regulations that would be relevant to the human activities within the MPA. The present human activities are described and their relevance to the ecosystem framework, to monitoring, and to the management of the MPA are described.--Author's description
Genomic evaluation of haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus L.) broodstock( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives of this study were to selectively genotype and sex haddock retained as broodstock at Coastal Zones Research Institute in Shippagan, New Brunswick and Fisheries and the Oceans Biological Station in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. The intention was to consolidate genetic and morphological data pertaining to all haddock broodstock maintained at both sites into one database. Having stock split between two sites was a necessary security measure. Based on the genetic composition of each stock, fish will be reallocated to production sites as necessary to maximize the genetic heterozygosity and to minimize inbreeding risk. This analysis would also indicate the need for new stock. This is the basic evaluation necessary until further interest and resources are available for a more thorough molecular and quantitative genetic breeding program.--Document

Evaluation of bay management area scenarios for the southwestern New Brunswick salmon aquaculture industry : Aquaculture Collaborative Research and Development Program final project report by Aquaculture Collaborative Research and Development Program (Canada)( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a result of the continued presence of infectious salmon anemia at salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick, the provincial government and the aquaculture industry proposed a new Bay Management Area (BMA) framework for this salmon farming region. This new framework included a reduced number of larger BMAs, stocking of farms in each BMA every 3 year, and mandatory, synchronized fallowing of farms within BMAs before restocking. This report examines the potential risks of water-borne disease spread between BMAs, comparing the old and new BMA frameworks. It estimated the zones of influence around farms using simple 2-km and 5-km radius circular zones and more precise estimates of tidal excursion areas, derived from a circulation model. It then examined the overlaps between the estimated zones of influence and fish farms and the overlaps among zones of influence, as predictors of the risks of water-borne disease transmission among the farms. It also used the tidal excursion areas to examine the potential for interactions between finfish farms and commercial fisheries.--Document
Guidelines for cage culture of Atlantic halibut in Canadian Maritime waters by E. J Stuart( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"High market value and good growth rate at low water temperatures makes Atlantic halibut, Hippoglossus hippoglossus, an ideal species for coldwater marine aquaculture in Atlantic Canada. This manual outlines knowledge gained through a 3-year multi-partner research program to evaluate the potential for successful cage culture of halibut in the Bay of Fundy. The unique climatic and oceanographic conditions of this environment preclude simply copying methods developed in other countries for this purpose. Details are provided on site selection criteria and cage design, accessing and transporting juveniles, best husbandry practices (nutrition, feeding techniques, mortality dives, grading and harvesting, net cleaning and shading, and stocking densities) and economics and marketing. It is reasonable to expect that culture technologies will become more advanced with industry growth, and it is hoped that this manual will aid the expansion of this industry."--Document
Summary of pollock hydroacoustic surveys on the Scotian Shelf by Peter Perley( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three acoustic surveys were completed between 1999 and 2002 to help determine the feasibility of using hydroacoustics as an index of abundance for pollock (Pollachius virens). The surveys searched areas of the Scotian Shelf in NAFO Divisions 4W, 4X and 5Z in an attempt to locate aggregations of pollock. A summary of these surveys is documented for sets and species caught, both by weight (kg) and proportion of the total weight caught, and, in areas where pollock aggregations were located, transects, species composition and length information were documented.--Author's description
Temporal and spatial characteristics of the ciliate Mesodinium rubrum in the Western Isles region of the Bay of Fundy( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The abundance of the ciliate Mesodinium rubrum has been monitored at five locations in the Bay of Fundy, eastern Canada, at weekly to monthly intervals since 1987. This paper intends to determine temporal and spatial characteristics of particular blooms of harmful algae in southwestern New Brunswick area from existing phytoplankton monitoring data since 1987; evaluate the statistical potential of these time series to give an early indication of a pending harmful algal blooms; and to determine the similarity between time series of phytoplankton collected at individual locations. The paper discusses study results.--Includes text from document

Characterization of the spatial pattern of benthic sulfide concentrations at six salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick, Bay of Fundy( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spatially-intensive sediment sulfide sampling surveys were conducted during the summer months at six salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick, Bay of Fundy, Canada. One of the six farms was also sampled during the following spring to examine seasonal changes. Grab samples were taken at 20-57 locations around the fish cages and up to 100-150 m away. The purpose of this Tier 1 monitoring is to provide an indiccation of the general magnitude of organic enrichment in sediments under fish farms; it was not designed to provide a description of the temporal or spatial variability of organic enrichment. In this study, the authors examined the effectiveness of the Tier 1 monitoring for providing accurate estimations of the overall seafloor impact from salmon farms.--Document
Analysis of results from the Environmental Management Program Tier 1 monitoring of salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick, Bay of Fundy : relationships between sediment sulfide concentration and selected parameters, 2002-2008 by B. D Chang( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Environmental Management Program (EMP) for fish farms in the southwestern New Brunswick area of the Bay of Fundy requires monitoring of the sulfide concentration in benthic sediments under all approved farms during 1 August to 31 October each year; this annual monitoring is designated "Tier 1". Sediment sulfide data from the Tier 1 monitoring were obtained for each farm monitored during 2002-2008." (source: abstract p.iv)
Gulf of Maine symposium : advancing ecosystem research for the future of the Gulf : proceedings of a symposium held at St. Andrews, NB, October 5-9, 2009 by Gulf of Maine Symposium( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This symposium was initiated by the Regional Association for Research on the Gulf of Maine (RARGOM), an association of institutions that are actively involved in research, management and stewardship activities related to the Gulf of Maine and its watershed, and was co-convened by Fisheries and Oceans Canada St. Andrews Biological Station (DFO SABS), the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI), the Communication Partnership for Science and the Sea (COMPASS) and the Gulf of Maine Census of Marine Life (GoMA/CoML). The symposium program was designed to inform participants about current research and policy objectives, constraints, and future influences on the management of marine resources, to share new developments in scientific knowledge regarding the Gulf of Maine, and to identify research priorities to meet future needs from an ecosystem-based approach. The symposium objectives were 1) to examine what progress had been made over the past decade in implementing an ecosystem approach, 2) to evaluate how well positioned Canada and the province of New Brunswick are to implement an ecosystem approach in the Gulf of Maine, and 3) to propose research priorities. --Document
A checklist of diatom species reported (and presumed native) from Canadian coastal waters by L Mather( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The transportation of phytoplankton via ballast water is one of the main vectors allowing organisms to establish themselves in new environments. Since the 1970s, both the frequency of ocean crossings and the volume transported has increased. Therefore, it is to be expected that the potential for invasion would have also increased. The aim of this report is to provide a list of diatom (Bacillariophyta) species found as their names appear in the cited literature, as well as their current valid name, from the Canadian and the neighbouring north, east, and west coasts of North America. This will allow for a better understanding of the presumed native diatoms, and thus the potentially non-native diatom species, documented in Canadian waters. As well, it provides a time-line for when these organisms were documented as occurring in Canadian waters.--Document
Evaluation of single and multi-beam sonar technology for water column target detection in an acoustically noisy environment by Gary Donald Melvin( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Large tidal variations and currents are a prerequisite for Tidal In-Stream Energy Conversion (TISEC) development. Unfortunately, these same conditions make it difficult to assess and monitor marine life in the vicinity of the development sites by rendering use of conventional sampling gear and methods ineffective in evaluating potential environmental impacts and risks. Multi-beam sonar technology such as the Simrad MS2000 has the potential for wideswath angle acoustic target detection under a variety of situations. Combined with more conventional multi-frequency, single or split-beam fisheries echo-sounders this technology could provide a mechanism to count and monitor the occurrence, distribution, and (potentially) behaviour of fish near or around physical structures such as submerged TISEC devices. The primary goal of this project is simply a "proof of concept." That is, to determine if acoustic technology can be used to monitor the distribution and abundance of targets (i.e., fishes) in the water column around the proposed turbines and, if so, to note any limitations relative to tidal flows and turbulence as to when, where, and how the technology might be used.--Document
Rapid assessment for Didemnum vexillum in southwest New Brunswick( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A species of major concern to many regions of the world including Canada's east coast is the colonial ascidian or "sea squirt", Didemnum vexillum. Major concerns associated with D. vexillum invasions include: ecological traits it shares with other species, high growth rates, ability to spread by fragmentation, tolerance to a wide range of environmental conditions, lack of predators, and ability to alter the abundance and composition of benthic habitat. Researchers from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec gathered in southwest New Brunswick to conduct a rapid assessment with the objective of surveying a number of locations in Passamaquoddy Bay, New Brunswick in late September 2009, to search for colonies of D. vexillum.--Includes text from document
Overview of discards from Canadian commercial fisheries in NAFO Divisions 4V, 4W, 4X, 5Y and 5Z for 2002-2006( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unintended incidental capture of species that are not the target of a fishery is referred to as by-catch. By-catch that is retained for sale or for use is monitored as fisheries landings. By-catch that is not retained is designated as discards. The purpose of this study was to characterize the discards, by weight, from Canadian commercial fisheries conducted in the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) Divisions 4V, 4W, 4X, 5Y and 5Z during 2002 to 2006. Discarding that is not permitted was not addressed here. Due to the broad scale of the comparisons, these analyses are coarse. Definitive estimates of discards for any particular fishery, area and season merit investigation of more detailed and fine scale analyses. Results obtained here are compared to results from some published analyses to get an appreciation of how rough these coarse estimates are. The utility of this study is to identify gaps in monitoring and to consider these coarse estimates of discards as the first stage in a triage to prioritize potential conservation risks that may be associated with higher discard amounts.--Document
Effects of extended photoperiods and light intensities on growth, sexual maturation and tissue water content of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in sea cages( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mariculture of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in the Bay of Fundy was initiated in the early 2000s and early maturation has been a persistent problem since its inception. The objectives of the present study were to evaluate, over separate two-year periods, whether 20 and 24 h light exposure compared to natural photoperiod in sea cages will (i) increase body growth, (ii) halt or delay sexual maturation, (iii) influence investment in reproductive tissue as reflected in gonad weight, and (iv) affect seasonal levels of water content in muscle and liver tissue of Atlantic cod."
