The St. Lawrence marine environment : knowledge and action, 1993-1998 by Maurice Lamontagne Institute( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the results of activities conducted during a period when the Maurice Lamontagne Institute participated in several special programs on the marine environment, over and above its regular scientific programs. These special programs included the St. Lawrence Vision 2000 Action Plan, the Toxic Chemicals Program of the Dept. of Fisheries & Oceans, and the federal Program of Energy Research & Development. The volume reviews departmental contributions to species and habitat conservation and protection, initiatives undertaken by community stakeholders, efforts to increase knowledge of the St. Lawrence marine environment, and research programs and management activities related to the marine ecosystem. The activities are reviewed in sections covering coastal habitats, community involvement, marine environment, marine mammals, contaminants, and management of marine ecosystems. Future directions established for environmental programs are also described. Includes glossaries
West coast of Newfoundland capelin (Mallotus villosus M.) and Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus harengus L.) larval survey( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 66 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

Harvest advice for Nunavik beluga (Delphinapterus leucas) by Thomas Doniol-Valcroze( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beluga hunt by Nunavik Inuit is important from a cultural and subsistence perspective. Harvesting in Nunavik has been regulated through a combination of area closures, and seasonal and regional allowable takes. The current management plan promotes the conservation of the eastern Hudson Bay (EHB) and Ungava Bay (UB) stocks but is due for review in 2012-2013. This document addresses the abundance of the EHB beluga stock and the impact of current harvest levels, the maximum harvest that maintains a 25%, 50% and 75% probability of increase for the EHB stock, taking into account the season and area of the hunt, a recovery target under the precautionary approach and scenarios of the maximum yearly harvest EHB beluga that still provide recovery within 25 and 50 years.--Document
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 39 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. Finally, the participants determined that given the magnitude of the problems encountered by marine mammals, the establishment of the MPA was justified and indeed essential to the protection of these animals and their habitats

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

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 34 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
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
Répartition géographique et indices d'abondance des poissons marins du nord du golfe du Saint-Laurent (1990-2009) = Geographic distribution and abundance indices of marine fish in the northern Gulf of St. Lawrence (1990-2009) by Hugo Bourdages( Book )

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). This report presents the physico-chemical data measured during the survey as well as the egg and larva counts from survey samples.--Document
Distribution et abondance des larves et juvéniles de poissons dans l'estuaire maritime du Saint-Laurent : connectivité entre le Golfe, l'Estuaire et le fjord du Saguenay by Alice O. V Bui( Book )

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

L'objectif de ce rapport est d'abord de faire état des connaissances actuelles sur la communauté ichtyoplanctonique et de juvéniles de poissons de fond dans l'estuaire maritime du Saint-Laurent et par la suite d'apporter des éléments de réponse concernant la source possible du recrutement des poissons commerciaux du fjord du Saguenay, soit la connectivité entre le Fjord et l'estuaire maritime. Pour ce faire, les données des relevés d'ichtyoplancton de 2009 et de 2010 ont été examinées ainsi que les données pour les juvéniles d'un an et deux ans issues du relevé au chalut de fond du MPO. L'information sur d'autres espèces à valeur commerciale mais non visées par la pêche blanche, comme la plie grise (Glyptocephalus cynoglossus), la plie canadienne (Hippoglossoides platessoides) et le flétan atlantique (Hippoglossus hippoglossus), a également été examinée dans le but de documenter l'importance de ces espèces dans l'Estuaire

Spacial distribution study of Atlantic mackerel (Scomber scombrus) and capelin (Mallotus villosus) abundance data from winter groundfish surveys in NAFO divisions 4VW using generalized additive models by Benoît Bruneau( )

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

Generalized additive models (GAM) were studied to describe the possible relationship between the geographic position (km), tow depths (m), bottom water temperature (°C), and abundance (log number / tow + 0.1) of Atlantic mackerel (Scomber scombrus) and capelin (Mallotus villosus) caught in a series of groundfish surveys conducted on the Scotian Shelf between 1994 and 2003. The selected models were used to determine the factors with a significant influence on Atlantic mackerel and capelin catches. These models also helped describe the thermal preferences of these two species. However, no abundance prediction was made because of the high number of tows without any catches
Atlas des espèces de crevettes de l'estuaire et du nord du golfe du Saint-Laurent Atlas of shrimp species of the Estuary and northern Gulf of St. Lawrence by L Savard( )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce rapport vise à compléter les informations déjà publiées sur la distribution des espèces de crevettes de l.estuaire et du nord du golfe du Saint-Laurent.
