Proceedings of the Maritime Provinces Regional Advisory Process on Banquereau Bank Arctic surfclam and Sable Bank and St. Mary's Bay ocean quahog assessment, 20 April 2007, Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Dartmouth, N.S. by Canada( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maritime Provinces Regional Advisory Process (RAP) review of the framework for the assessment and management strategy for Banquereau Bank arctic surfclam and ocean quahogs on Sable Bank and in St. Mary's Bay was completed in early April 2007. The framework provided advice on the appropriate data and methodology for the assessment and recommendations to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Fisheries and Aquaculture Management Branch (FAM) on the exploitation of these stocks. At a meeting on 20 April 2007, the framework was applied for the first time to provide the assessment in support of the fishery. The objectives of this meeting are provided in the Terms of Reference (Appendix 1). The Agenda and List of Participants are provided in Appendices 2 and 3, respectively.--Includes text from document

Diet of cormorants, mergansers, and kingfishers in northeastern North America by David Kenneth Cairns( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviews the literature on the diets of piscivorous birds in the Atlantic Provinces, eastern Quebec, and the Atlantic New England states. The review is based on published and unpublished dietary investigations on double-crested (Phalacrocorax auritus) and great (P. carbo) cormorants, common (Mergus merganser), red-breasted (M. serrator) and hooded (Lophodytes cucullatus) mergansers, and belted kingfishers (Ceryle alcyon), which are conspicuous members of riparian and estuarine ecosystems in the areas studied and are often at the centre of controversy regarding impact of predators on fish stocks. Diet compositions from individual studies are tabulated to the lowest taxonomic unit, and another table summarizes diet composition by region and prey group. Biases and gaps in the data are noted and prey selectivity among the birds is discussed

Annotated bibliography of demersal fish feeding with emphasis on selected studies from the Scotian Shelf and Grand Banks of the northwestern Atlantic by David Alan Methven( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summarizes 89 papers from the primary and secondary scientific literature that describe the diet and feeding ecology of demersal fish that occur on the Grand Banks, Scotian Shelf, and nearby waters. The following information, if available, is recorded for each study: purpose, predator, predator size, dominant prey, prey size, location and time of study, how prey were quantified, number of predator stomachs examined, depth, bottom type, and calorific content of prey. Text describing the contribution of the dominant prey of each predator is also included and is summarized with respect to sources of variation known to influence prey selection. The results are combined to gain an overview of the diet and feeding ecology of several of the best studied, most common, and commercially important species (gadids, pleuronectids, redfish, wolf-fish, and eelpout). Papers are arranged alphabetically by author
Effect of gear type and initial stocking density on production of meats and large whole scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) using suspension culture in Newfoundland by R. W Penney( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper investigates the production of large, whole giant sea scallops and meats in suspension culture using pearl nets and lantern nets, and describes the effect of varying initial stocking density on growth and survival during final growout to market size. The investigators reared the scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) at five different stocking densities at a shellfish farm at Notre Dame Bay, Newfoundland. Significant relationships are reported among mean shell height, total weight, meat weight, and stocking density and gear type. The report discusses the practical implications of the growth and survival results for commercial farm practices related to stocking densities, gear type selection, stock thinning, and labor costs, for the production of large, whole scallops, meats, and meat with roe products

This report refers to only that portion of SFA 29 west of longitude 65° 30'W continuing north to Scallop Production Area 3 at latitude 43° 40'N. This report summarizes commercial fishery, research survey and observer data for the 2008 fishery and provides advice for the 2009 fishery.--Document
Identifying research needs in support of regulatory aspects of the aquaculture framework agreement by Paul D Keizer( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A framework is presented for the identification of priorities for research in support of the regulatory aspects of the Aquaculture Framework Agreement that is under development by the Canadian Council of Fisheries and Aquaculture Ministers. The proposed framework is based on the risk analysis of the hazards associated with aquaculture. The analysis is limited to the risks as defined by published information on the severity and probability of occurrence of undesirable outcomes. Recent comprehensive peer reviews of the scientific literature are used as the knowledge base. The analysis can be readily updated when additional knowledge is available. The framework is generally applicable and could be used to include the socioeconomic and political risks in the analysis
National Detailed-Level Risk Assessment Guidelines : assessing the biological risk of aquatic invasive species in Canada = Directives nationales sur les évaluations du risque de niveau détaillé : évaluation du risque biologique associé aux espèces aquatiques envahissantes by Nicholas Edward Mandrak( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Risk assessments of aquatic invasive species (AIS) are required to make sound management decisions regarding the aquatic ecosystems, fisheries resources, fish habitat, and aquaculture that AIS may impact, and that Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is mandated to protect. DFO formed the Centre of Expertise for Aquatic Risk Assessment (CEARA) to oversee the risk assessment of AIS across the country. One of the mandates and objectives of CEARA is to develop a scientifically defensible national framework for conducting biological risk assessments of AIS. This document fulfills that mandate."--Document

Discrimination of the endangered Atlantic whitefish (Coregonus huntsmani Scott, 1987) larvae and juveniles by Daniel J Hasselman( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atlantic Whitefish (Coregonus huntsmani) are an endangered species endemic to Nova Scotia, Canada. Several actions identified in the Atlantic Whitefish recovery strategy require accurate identification of the species early life history stages. While criteria exists for the discrimination of adult specimens, no such criteria is available for larvae or juveniles. Using specimens obtained from the captive mating of wild caught adults, and those made available to this study, the authors conduct discriminant function analyses on phenetic characters, and incorporate species specific pigmentation patterns to develop discrimination criteria for early life history stage Atlantic Whitefish, Lake Whitefish (C. clupeaformis), and Cisco (C. artedii).--Document

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
