Fish Health and Oceanography Project of the Aquaculture Collaborative Research and Development Program : final project report by F. H Page( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The project's main goal was to enhance understanding of the water circulation and water transport pathways within the Long Pond Bay area of southern Grand Manan and to use this to help assess the influence of the water circulation pattern on fish health and bay management concerns in the area. This report summarizes the project's findings. It also includes the presentations given at the final meeting of the project, held on February 17, 2004.--Publisher's description
Phytoplankton early warning approaches for salmon farmers in southwestern New Brunswick : aquaculture collaborative research and development program : final project report( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This project investigated the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of several potential early warning approaches for harmful algal blooms at salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick (SWNB). The components of this 3-yr project included: training farm personnel on the sampling, identification, and counting of harmful algal species; implementation of high frequency phytoplankton monitoring by farm staff at selected salmon farms; retrospective statistical analyses of existing monitoring data; laboratory experiments to determine threshold concentrations of selected harmful algae which can cause problems for farmed salon; use of a water circulation model to predict the movements of blooms which may affect salmon farms; evaluation of the effectiveness of a light sensor array for bloom detection; and evaluation of the usefulness of satellite imagery for bloom detection."--Document
Evaluation of bay management area scenarios for the southwestern New Brunswick salmon aquaculture industry : Aquaculture Collaborative Research and Development Program final project report by Aquaculture Collaborative Research and Development Program (Canada)( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a result of the continued presence of infectious salmon anemia at salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick, the provincial government and the aquaculture industry proposed a new Bay Management Area (BMA) framework for this salmon farming region. This new framework included a reduced number of larger BMAs, stocking of farms in each BMA every 3 year, and mandatory, synchronized fallowing of farms within BMAs before restocking. This report examines the potential risks of water-borne disease spread between BMAs, comparing the old and new BMA frameworks. It estimated the zones of influence around farms using simple 2-km and 5-km radius circular zones and more precise estimates of tidal excursion areas, derived from a circulation model. It then examined the overlaps between the estimated zones of influence and fish farms and the overlaps among zones of influence, as predictors of the risks of water-borne disease transmission among the farms. It also used the tidal excursion areas to examine the potential for interactions between finfish farms and commercial fisheries.--Document

Use of a water circulation model to predict the movements of phytoplankton blooms affecting salmon farms in the Grand Manan Island area, southwestern New Brunswick( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phytoplankton blooms can have harmful impacts on finfish aquaculture farms, mainly due to toxic effects, damage to gills or depletion of dissolved oxygen in the water. Because of the potential economic consequences, fish farmers are interested in getting an early warning of the possibility that phytoplankton blooms could affect their farms. This project uses a water circulation model to predict the speed and directions of algal blooms which could be transported via surface water currents to fish farms in the Grand Manan Island area, Bay of Fundy, southwestern New Brunswick.--Document
Report of the Applied Coastal Ecosystem Science (ACES) Workshop, 28-30 January 2003, St. Andrews, New Brunswick( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The St. Andrews Biological Stations (SABS) of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has proposed a multi-disciplinary research program, with a focus on applied ecosystem issues, under the name of Applied Coastal Ecosystem Science (ACES). Coastal zone issues are becoming increasingly important and it is recognized that these issues require integrated, ecosystem-based science in order to provide sound advice to managers. The current organizational structure of SABS has scientific staff located within sections which focus mainly on single subjects, such as stock assessments and research, aquaculture, oceanography or the main environment. The ACES project would allow more cooperation among scientists from different sections, thus facilitating an integrated research approach to issues.--Publisher's description
Characterization of the spatial pattern of benthic sulfide concentrations at six salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick, Bay of Fundy( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spatially-intensive sediment sulfide sampling surveys were conducted during the summer months at six salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick, Bay of Fundy, Canada. One of the six farms was also sampled during the following spring to examine seasonal changes. Grab samples were taken at 20-57 locations around the fish cages and up to 100-150 m away. The purpose of this Tier 1 monitoring is to provide an indiccation of the general magnitude of organic enrichment in sediments under fish farms; it was not designed to provide a description of the temporal or spatial variability of organic enrichment. In this study, the authors examined the effectiveness of the Tier 1 monitoring for providing accurate estimations of the overall seafloor impact from salmon farms.--Document
Analysis of results from the Environmental Management Program Tier 1 monitoring of salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick, Bay of Fundy : relationships between sediment sulfide concentration and selected parameters, 2002-2008 by B. D Chang( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Environmental Management Program (EMP) for fish farms in the southwestern New Brunswick area of the Bay of Fundy requires monitoring of the sulfide concentration in benthic sediments under all approved farms during 1 August to 31 October each year; this annual monitoring is designated "Tier 1". Sediment sulfide data from the Tier 1 monitoring were obtained for each farm monitored during 2002-2008." (source: abstract p.iv)
Water circulation and management of infectious salmon anemia in the salmon aquaculture industry in Passamaquoddy Bay, southwestern New Brunswick( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Infectious salmon anemia (ISA) was first detected in salmon farms in southwestern New Brunswick in 1996. In an effort to help estimate the potential for water-borne exchange of the ISA virus among farms in this area, a three-dimensional tidal water circulation and particle transport model was used. Water exchange scenarios based on the movement of particles during one tidal excursion, as predicted by the model, are compared to those estimated by a simple method assuming a 5-km radius cirular zone of water exchange around each farm. This report examines the water exchange among farms in the Passamaquoddy Bay area, as well as with farms in adjacent areas. It also examines the relative risks, with respect to the water-borne spread of disease, of two potential locations for a proposed new salmon farm in northern Passamaquoddy Bay

Interlaboratory research on factors affecting the calibration of electrodes used for sediment sulfide analyses at fish farms by B. D Chang( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Sediment sulfide concentration is the key indicator used to evaluate the impacts of benthic organic enrichment under marine salmon farms in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and British Columbia. Some differences in the Standard Operating Practices or Procedures (SOPs) for sediment sulfide measurement exist among the provinces, and these may contribute to variability in results. This project examined some factors that could affect the accuracy of the calibration of electrodes used to measure sediment sulfide concentrations, focussing on factors which vary among the different SOPs."--Document
