Proceedings of the Maritime Provinces Regional Advisory Process on assessment of 4VWX herring, 8-9 May 2007, St. Andrews, New Brunswick by Canada( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 65 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 55 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 The review is based on published and unpublished dietary investigations on double-crested (Phalacrocorax auritus) and great (P. carbo) cormorants, common (Mergus merganser), red-breasted (M. serrator) and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

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 51 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
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 51 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
Evaluation of habitat improvement and restoration initiatives for salmonids in Newfoundland, Canada by Canada( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a overview of these evaluations, as selected case studies including projects involving restoration of habitat degraded historic forest harvesting (Joe Farrell's Brook and Pamehac Brook), removal of a natural migration barrier (Dead Wolf Brook), and the addition of spawning gravel to increase juvenile salmonid production (Northeast Placentia River).--Abstract
Identifying research needs in support of regulatory aspects of the aquaculture framework agreement by Paul D Keizer( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 44 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

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

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

The Shoal Harbour River rainbow trout population supports a local sport fishery. However, nothing is known about their marine migrations or the extent to which rainbow trout use the estuarine environment. The purpose of this study therefore, was to use Sr in the otoliths of rainbow trout from Shoal Harbour to study the frequency and duration of their marine migrations. 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.--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
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
