Abstract:

The rotary screw trap provides a method of capturing fishes in fast flowing waters with minimal impact on the environment. A rotary screw trap is a passive sampling gear which takes advantage of flowing water to capture and retain downstream migrating fish. The gear is non-size and non-species selective. In sampling from five rivers in New Brunswick (Canada) during the spring and fall seasons, over 20 species of fishes were captured including Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.), various species of small cyprinids (dace, chub, shiner), suckers (Catastomus sp.), American eel (Anguilla rostrata L.), and sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus L.). The size of fish sampled in the traps ranged from emerging salmon fry at 3 cm fork length to adult American eels at over 85 cm in total length. Catches at the traps provided descriptions of downstream fish movements in the spring and fall, variations in species presence and relative abundance among years, within a river system and among rivers.
