The LaHave River : physiography and potential for Atlantic salmon production by R.W Gray( Book )
3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
An extensive Atlantic Salmon enhancement project was undertaken on the main branch of the LaHave River above Morgan Falls beginning in 1969. This report describes the involvement of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans in improving fish passage on the river; outlines some of the physical, biological and chemical characteristics of the watershed; presents data on stream obstructions, stream profiles, water discharge, water temperature and water chemistry; and describes the spawning and nursery habitat classified according to type and measured quantitatively for each major salmon producing tributary of the river
Effect of run timing on the exploitation by anglers of Atlantic salmon in the Miramichi River by Robert George Randall( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
This report estimates the exploitation rate of salmon by anglers in the Miramichi River, comparing exploitation rates of early and late run salmon; examines the feasibility of estimating spawning escapement from angling catch data; and identifies the tagging and research requirements if mark-recapture data from anglers are going to be used to estimate spawning escapement in the river in the future. Adult salmon were tagged during their upstream migration at Millbank annually from 1966-75 and from 1985-87. Tags returned by anglers were documented as to capture date, location and tag number. A subsample of anglers were asked to report their catch by major tributary and total catches were then estimated from the subsamples. The angling data has been available since 1969; angling catches for 1966-69 were estimated
Changes in the abundance and distribution of the American oyster population of the Dunk River public fishing area of Bedeque Bay, Prince Edward Island by Thomas William Sephton( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The American oyster population of the Dunk River public fishing area is one of the most productive in Prince Edward Island and remains one of the most important sources of legal-size oysters for the spring relay fishery. This report is an assessment of the distribution, abundance and structure of the oyster population of the area based on a quantitative study conducted in July 1987. A standard sampling procedure, based on previous studies conducted from 1969-77, permits an examination of the changes that have occurred in the population since it was last surveyed in 1977. The data reported for 1972 are re-analyzed with additional information and re-presented for comparison. The study was designed to obtain baseline field data required to initiate further studies on the biology and ecology of the Bedeque Bay oyster population
Gear types, seasonal distribution of effort, and bycatch of the smelt fishery in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence by David Kenneth Cairns( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The smelt fishery in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence is a significant part of the economy of the Maritime provinces and eastern Quebec. The revenue from the smelt fishery is particularly important to many people because smelts are caught in the fall and winter, when there is little income from other fisheries. This report presents results of a questionnaire sent to holders of smelt licences in the southern Gulf to gain basic information on the distribution of smelt fishing effort in the area, the timing of the fishery, and the type of gear used. An important additional objective was to learn about the bycatch of other species in smelt gear, particularly that of juvenile Atlantic herring. Bycatch of blueback herring and alewives was also investigated
Stock composition of Northumberland Strait, Nova Scotia Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) commercial fisheries by Ross Richardson Claytor( Book )

Abundance, distribution and dynamics of the American oyster population of the public fishing area of Caraquet Bay, New Brunswick by Thomas William Sephton( Book )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The American oyster is a common inhabitant of the shallow bays and estuaries along the east coast of North America, with the most northern commercially exploited population located in Caraquet Bay, New Brunswick. This report is an assessment of the distribution, abundance, and structure of the oyster population of the public fishing area based on a quantitative study conducted in June 1987. A standard sampling procedure, based on previous studies conducted in 1974 and 1979, permits an examination of the changes occurring in the population since it was last surveyed. This study was designed to obtain the baseline field data required to initiate further studies on the biology and ecology of the Caraquet Bay oyster population
Comparison of the fishing efficiency of research vessels used in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence groundfish surveys from 1971 to 1992 by G. A Nielsen( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Stratified random surveys are conducted in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence annually in September to estimate the abundance of different species of groundfish. These estimates are used in the assessment of stock abundance for cod, white hake, and American plaice. Between 1971 and 1992, there were three research vessels and prior to each changeover, a comparative experiment was conducted to determine the efficiency of the new vessel relative to that of the vessel being replaced. The objectives of the experiments was to quantify any differences in fishing power between vessels, and produce factors, if necessary, by which catches by one vessel could be multiplied to ensure consistency with catches by another, resulting in consistent abundance indices
Specifications for establishing a nursery of indigenous plants for shoreline stabilization : report by J.-P Meister( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Shoreline degradation is an important environmental disturbance affecting aquatic environments. This document provides general specifications for the production of indigenous plants to regenerate degraded shorelines of lakes and streams, brackish waters and dunes in Atlantic Canada. Included are descriptions of the indigenous plants proposed, recommended propagation techniques, general specifications for establishing a nursery of this type and an overview of anticipated costs. Only the methods of propagation and cultivation likely to produce a plant capable of surviving adverse transplantation conditions at an affordable price are described
Évaluation du potentiel de rétablissment de la raie tachetée du sud du golfe du Saint-Laurent (division 4T de l'OPANO) ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 3 libraries worldwide
En mai 2005, le Comité sur la situation des espèces en péril au Canada (COSEPAC) a désigné la population de raie tachetée (Leucoraja ocellata) du sud du golfe du Saint-Laurent comme étant en voie de disparition. L'analyse présentée ici servira à éclairer les décisions concernant l'inscription éventuelle de la maraîche sur la Liste des espèces en péril et la planification de son rétablissement
Hareng du sud du golfe du Saint-Laurent Niveaux de référence applicables à la biomasse du stock reproducteur ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Il est nécessaire d'élaborer des points de référence axés sur la conservation et compatibles avec l'approche de précaution. Ces niveaux de référence seraient utilisés de concert avec le niveau d'exploitation de référence F0,1 pour élaborer une stratégie d'exploitation propice à la conservation des composantes de reproducteurs de printemps et d'automne du stock de hareng du sud du golfe du Saint- Laurent (4T). Ces composantes sont évaluées séparément, au moyen d'une analyse de population virtuelle (APV) comme principal outil analytique. Si l'état de la composante de reproducteurs d'automne continue d'être bon, la composante de reproducteurs de printemps décline depuis plusieurs années et on estime qu'elle se situe maintenant sous ses moyennes à long terme
Annual and geographical variations in sealworm (Pseudoterranova decipiens) larvae in rainbow smelt (Osmerus mordax) from the Gulf of St. Lawrence by T Landry( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The use of rainbow smelt as a host indicator of sealworm abundance offers an accurate temporal and geographical index for inshore areas. The smelt sealworm survey was initiated in 1984 with 4 locations sampled along the New Brunswick coast, and has increased to 9 locations from the Gulf of St. Lawrence in 1989. This inshore survey is complementary to the American plaice sealworm survey for offshore areas. The data collected from 1989 are analyzed with those from past collections (1984-88) to evaluate variations in sealworm abundance over a 5-year period
