A chemical and ectotoxicological assessment of marine tailings disposal at two former copper mine sites in Newfoundland by G Veinott( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of the project described in this report was to assess the long-term environmental & ecotoxicological consequences of submarine tailings disposal at two former copper mines on the Notre Dame Peninsula, northern Newfoundland. The project had three components: chemical assessment of tailings & sediments, delineation of impact zones, and ecotoxicological assessment. The report describes the laboratory & field methods used and presents results for each component, including tailings analyses, tailings physical profiles, metal concentrations in sediments & biota, response of biota to tailings exposure, and benthic community structure

Atlantic salmon return and spawner estimates for insular Newfoundland = Estimations des retours et des reproducteurs de saumon atlantique dans l'île de Terre Neuve by D. G Reddin( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, the small, large, and two-sea winter (2SW) returns and spawner estimates for insular Newfoundland Atlantic salmon stocks are presented for the years 1971-2008. This material was prepared for the 2009 meeting of the ICES North Atlantic Salmon Working Group and for a DFO held pre-COSEWIC review conducted in February, 2009 in Halifax, NS. The catch statistics used to derive returns and spawner estimates are updated for 2007 from those used previously and new return and spawner estimates are presented for 2008. Estimates for 2008 should be considered preliminary. The updated catch statistics are the result of information collected during telephone surveys of anglers who did not respond (non-respondents) to the prompts to return their angling log with a record of angling activities. Non-respondent surveys were carried out in years 1998-2007 (those for 2008 are being presently done but have not yet been incorporated in angling catches). Year-specific information for non-respondents has been incorporated into catch and effort estimates for 1998-2007 and average values of catch and effort per angler (1998-2000) for years prior to 1998. Average non-respondent information for all years is used for the preliminary estimates for 2008.--Document
Trace element and heavy metal data for blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) from Trinity Bay and Placentia Bay, Newfoundland by G Veinott( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a report that provided baseline data on metal concentrations in Newfoundland mussels (Kennedy & Benson, 1993), several sites sampled in Trinity Bay & Conception Bay had blue mussels with lead concentrations that exceeded levels of concern for human health. This report describes a project that resampled sites in those two bays to determine if there was a change in the metal loads of the mussels. Results are presented on trace element & heavy metal concentrations in mussel tissues as determined by mass spectrometry, with comparisons to the 1993 findings. Possible reasons for differences in the two studies are discussed
Seventh meeting of the Canadian Eel Science Working Group, 14-16 October 2009, Moncton, New Brunswick by Canadian Eel Science Working Group( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Canadian Eel Science Working Group (CESWoG) met for the seventh time from October 14-16, 2009 at the Future Inns in Moncton, New Brunswick. The purpose of the meeting was to: 1. plan a strategy for addressing a formal request for advice from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) on the following questions: a. How do you assess cumulative impact of multiple dams in a watershed? b. What is best methodology for setting recruitment and escapement targets for a watershed, taking into account cumulative impacts? c. What is the current status of eels in Canada? d. What progress has been made toward meeting the goal of a 50% reduction in mortality, in both weight and numbers, relative to the baseline of average mortality in 1997-2002? 2. provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of new and emerging eel science in Canada. Since there was no formal request for advice by DFO, no advice is provided in this document."--Document
Renews River salmonid research project : year 2 (2008) data and results by G Veinott( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides an overview of the data collected in the second year (2008) of a planned six year study of salmonid populations in the Renews River watershed. Distribution and abundance of juvenile Atlantic salmon and brown trout in the main stem of the river was similar to that reported in 2007. Juvenile fish densities remain low. Growth and condition indices remained comparable to 2007 data, but brook trout caught in Big Butterpot Pond in the winter only weighed 77% of the North American standard for brook trout in good condition. There was a shift to smaller fish being caught in the recreational brown trout fishery in 2008 compared to 2007. In 2008 the modal size group was 15-20 cm compared with 30-35 cm in 2007. An estimated 260 fish were taken in the brown trout fishery with the highest numbers of fish taken in the evenings and on weekdays. The greatest effort occurred early in the angling season when the largest fish were taken. Acoustic tags revealed that some brown trout smolt, decending the river in spring, leave the harbour and at least one brown trout migrated northward along the coast for at least 16 km. Large numbers of juvenile salmon and trout, 2 and 3 years of age, descend the river in the spring and are likely the main source of recruitment for the recreational fishery. Only 4% of the brown trout sampled in the recreational fishery showed any spawning marks on their scales. First spawning occurs at age 4 or 5. The total number of seals counted in the harbour in 2008 decreased by 70% over 2007. There was also a significant decline in the average number of cormorants and terns in 2008 compared to 2007. There was no evidence of anthropogenitic pollution entering Renews River but peak water temperatures frequently exceeded 25°C and at times would be considered lethal for juvenile salmonids

Estimating proportion of large salmon on Harry's River, Newfoundland using a DIDSON acoustic camera by G Veinott( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A DIDSON (Dual-Frequency Identification Sonar) acoustic camera has been used to enumerate upstream migrating Atlantic Salmon in Harry’s River, Newfoundland since 2011. Operated in high frequency mode, acoustic images were used to estimate the length of individual salmon to determine the proportion of large (≥ 63 cm) fish in the annual spawning migration. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the length data that has been produced by the DIDSON under standard field operating conditions to determine the degree of uncertainty in the measurements, to compare DIDSON derived length measurements to historical trap and video length measurements, and to recommend a length cut-off value to separate large from small salmon when using DIDSON length data in stock assessments.--Document
Shore based angling for brown trout (Salmo trutta) in the Renews River Estuary, Newfoundland : a case study by G Veinott( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basic biological data were collected from brown trout angled from 2007 to 2009 in the Renews River estuary on the south-east coast of the island of Newfoundland. In 2008 the average length of angled fish (22.2 cm) decreased by 7 cm compared to 2007 and 2009 despite the modal age remaining at 3+ years. The average length of the 3+ age group in 2008 also decreased compared to 2007 and 2009. However, the Fulton condition factor for the 3+ fish did not change between 2008 and 2009. The cause of the reduction in average length is unknown. Formal creel surveys carried out in 2008 and 2009 showed that angling effort was greatest at the start of the angling season (mid May) and steadily declined as the season progressed. Effort was also concentrated on the weekends but catch per unit effort (CPUE) varied between years and among sampling periods (time of day and time of week). On average about 2 anglers fished per day with the average fishing trip lasting between 1 and 3 hours. Fewer than 2 fish per trip were angled. Total number of fish angled was estimated at approximately 250 in each of 2008 and 2009 with approximately 50 % retained. This translated into an exploitation rate of 5 %. Juveniles and smolt emigrate annually (1400/year) from the river to the estuary with juveniles likely the main source of recruits to the fishery. Full recruitment to the fishery occurs at age 3+ whereas spawning does not begin until age 4. Despite the harvest of immature fish, the current level of fishing pressure should be sustainable. Fisheries managers, however, may want to consider the impact, viable and expanding invasive brown trout populations could have on native salmonids

Using otolith Sr concentrations to monitor marine migrations in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) from Shoal Harbour, Newfoundland by G Veinott( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve rainbow trout were provided to DFO from anglers in the Shoal Harbour area. Eleven of the 12 specimens were female and most were sexually immature. Ages ranged from 3 to 7 years with river ages of 1-4 years and sea ages of 1- 4 years. Only the oldest specimen had a spawning mark on its scales. Chemical analyses (strontium concentrations) of the otoliths revealed that all specimens migrated from freshwater to the estuary or the sea. Time spent in the estuary, which is a mix of fresh and sea water, varied among individuals as did the time spent in full salinity sea water. Growth interpreted as "sea age" based on the scales often turned out to be estuarine growth based on the chemical analyses. There was no evidence that any of the specimens returned to fresh water to spawn or overwinter. This suggests that once out of the river the rainbow trout take up residency in the estuary or open ocean often for several years
