Proceedings from a scientific workshop on marine mammals, their habitats and food resources, held in Mont-Joli (Quebec) from April 3 to 7, 2000, within the context of the St. Lawrence Estuary Marine Protected Area project by J.-Y Savaria( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This manuscript reports on a scientific workshop on the marine mammals of the St. Lawrence Estuary held at the Maurice Lamontagne Institute in April 2000. The purpose of the workshop was to make a scientific assessment of the need for a marine protected area (MPA) in the St. Lawrence Estuary to protect marine mammals, their habitats and their food resources. Present and potential problems faced by marine mammals, arising essentially from human activities in the vicinity, were debated. The participants were then able to prioritize these various problems and weigh the adequacy of the MPA proposed boundaries. Disturbance, contamination and lack of knowledge were identified as the key problems."--Document

Coastal and epipelagic habitats of the estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A database is presented that describes the pelagic and benthic habitats of the 0-30 m surface layer in the estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence. A grid made of 6.25 km² cells (2.5 x 2.5 km) was used to aggregate the data. Each of the 39,337 cells overlapping the marine environment was characterized using landscape, hydrographic, and oceanographic parameters determined from observations (including satellite imagery), a 3D circulation model, and published and unpublished material available at local and regional scales. The low tide limit was taken as the upper (0 m) boundary, but neighbouring landscape features, such as the proximity to freshwater inflows, surface area of the tidal zone, and characteristics of the shoreline, were also taken into consideration. The dataset includes 130 descriptors: cell location parameters such as cell address, latitude and longitude, and distance to the coast; landscape features such as depth, slope, insulosity, coastline development, shore material and characteristics, degree of protection from the open sea, sensitivity of the shoreline to sea-level rise, and relative importance of the benthic and pelagic environments; hydrographic and oceanographic parameters such as distance to the nearest stream or river and its drainage area and mean annual flow, tidal range, vertical and horizontal currents, sea-surface climatology, ice conditions, salinity and temperature at various depths, stability of the water column. A total of 103 variables were used to classify cells into 14 different habitats. The information can be used for mapping purposes and for analyses of species-habitat relationships, a key requirement for conservation, integrated management, or species-at-risk recovery planning purposes.--Document
West coast of Newfoundland capelin (Mallotus villosus M.) and Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus harengus L.) larval survey( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In partnership with the Barry Group in Corner Brook, a larval survey was conducted on the west coast of Newfoundland in July 2007 to measure the abundance and to describe the spatial distribution of eggs and larvae of fish species sampled, two of which were commercially significant, capelin (Mallosus villosus) and Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus harengus). This study's three objectives were to calculate the abundance of eggs and larvae of all species sampled in 2007 using geostatistics, study their biodiversity by multivariate analysis techniques, and describe the possible links between their abundance, the geographical location of the stations, and water temperatures using generalized additive models (GAM).--Document
West coast of Newfoundland capelin (Mallotus villosus M.) and Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus harengus L.) larval survey( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In partnership with the Barry Group, a larval survey was conducted on the west coast of Newfoundland from 16 to 18 July 2008 to measure the abundance of fish eggs and larvae sampled with plankton nets. A second objective was to describe the spatial distribution of fish larvae including those from two significant commercial species, capelin (Mallotus villosus) and Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus harengus). The spatial distribution of these eggs and larvae, their abundance, and biodiversity measurements are presented in this document.--Includes text from document
Pathways of effects (PoE) model development for capelin conservation as part of a risk analysis process( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the first phase of this pilot project was to create Pathways of Effects (PoE) models for capelin conservation in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence as part of a risk analysis process. When conducting this type of analysis, the PoE is created during the identification and problem formulation phase, the goal being to identify the potential relationships that exist between human activities, the stressors generated, and their impacts on a component of the ecosystem, and consequently on the communities that depend on this component. This project is related to the current national work on risk analysis and applies the theoretical notions established in the earlier work in the context of a real situation. In this context, capelin conservation in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence was identified for this project, since capelin is a key species in the marine food chain. During this phase, six PoE models were developed, each illustrating one view of capelin conservation that is either general or specific. Together, these models serve to illustrate the relationships that exist between the ecological, socioeconomic, and cultural components as well as such key ecological parameters as the quantity and quality of capelin spawning / larval retention habitat and capelin abundance. The development and application of PoE models using a real situation have confirmed their usefulness as tools for integrating knowledge and for communication; PoEs also play a role in providing support for decision-making and guidance for subsequent steps in the risk analysis process.--Document

A standardized database to describe and classify offshore benthic marine habitats and its use for designating the critical habitat of species at risk( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report includes the material presented at a workshop organized by the Species at Risk Program Management and held from 20 to 22 March 2012 in Ottawa (day 3 of the workshop). A standardized methodology was proposed to describe the critical habitat of species at risk when using data available from annual research surveys conducted to assess the relative abundance of groundfish. The method uses a single spatial reference system made of 100 km² cells to gather data on species and habitats. The classification of benthic habitats has been described previously; here, it was sought to fully describe the characteristics of each of these habitats and to analyze the spatial fragmentation. Wolffish habitats are described using presence/absence data (relative occurrence), while those of the American plaice are described from data on relative occurrence and abundance as well as for two size classes and three periods. Statistical analysis was used to examine the relationship of these species with their environment and to identify habitats that seem to be the most important for stages vulnerable to trawling. The data on other fish species are used as biological descriptors pointing to potential interspecific relationships within assemblages.--Document
Thermograph network in the Gulf of St. Lawrence by B Pettigrew( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The thermograph network program of the Maurice Lamontagne Institute started in 1993 with six monitoring stations. The main aim was to measure seawater surface temperature in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence and to maintain a database of those data. Today's measurements are no longer limited to surface water temperature: some stations are now equipped with multi-devices platforms allowing the measurement of oceanographic, optical and meteorological parameters. However, we focus our attention in this report exclusively on the seawater temperature records with the goal of facilitating their use by identifying available data as well as missing data records. We have tabulated relevant record numbers that characterize the completeness of the raw data files recorded during the period from 1993 to 2014. To complement these tables we plotted figures for every year that show the time intervals with valid data records for each station. We also present some examples of physical oceanographic phenomena in the coastal waters of the program area"--Abstract, p. vi
