Selection of silver hake, Merluccius bilinearis, in kapron codends : a preliminary report by Douglas Clay( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes & presents results of size selection trials carried out for silver hake on the Scotian Shelf between south-west Sable Island Bank and LeHave Bank. The aim of this study was to interpret the effects of legislation limiting fishing in the area to any gear with a codend mesh of 60 millimetres or over, and to explore the possibility of increasing the long-term yield of the silver hake fishery through optimum effort with appropriate gear type. The results presented include length frequency distributions and selectivity graphs of all species for which adequate data were collected
Estimation of the herring spawning biomass near Isle Verte in the St. Lawrence Estuary from an intensive larval survey in 1979 by François Auger( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes & presents results of a spawning biomass survey of a small, spatially discrete herring population in the St. Lawrence River estuary. The survey was performed by sampling yolk sac larvae near the spawning grounds with a small, fast vessel. Total daily larval production was estimated from five cruises covering the spawning area. Supplementary information from four stations in the area of peak yolk sac larval abundance, sampled at times other than the five survey cruises, was used to define the daily larval production curve. The weight/fecundity relationship was employed along with sex ratio to estimate spawning biomass. Possible sources of error are discussed

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This assessment considers east coast Newfoundland herring as four stock complexes: White Bay-Notre Dame Bay; Bonavista Bay; Trinity Bay; and Conception Bay-southern shore. It summarizes the results of data collected in 1979, including trends in biomass & fishing mortality, trends in recruitment, and changes in average weight-at-age & mean recruitment rate. It also presents a short-term prognosis of yield & abundance
Assessment of the Division 4VWX and Subarea 5 pollock stock complex by J. M McGlade( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report begins with a review of nominal catches in the Scotian Shelf pollock fishery, including both Canadian, US, & foreign landings as well as historical data. Stock size indices are then estimated based on research vessel surveys, followed by estimation of commercial catch rates, total mortality, partial recruitment, and yield per recruit. The final part makes catch projections to 1982
Status of Atlantic salmon stocks in Newfoundland and Labrador, 1983 by M. F O'Connell( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides an update of Atlantic salmon catch & effort statistics for the commercial & recreational fisheries in insular Newfoundland & Labrador and counts from several fishways (insular Newfoundland) in 1983. This information is used to examine the current status of stocks in relation to historical data & long-term trends. Predicted levels of abundance are also provided for the next several years
Fishery characteristics and stock status of Georges Bank scallops by G. S Jamieson( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the early 1960s, Canadian fishing regulations have required daily completion of scallop log records. This has provided a record of both scallop fishing performance and the specific locations of scallop concentrations. This paper reviews fishery characteristics between 1966 & 1980 for both Georges Bank and the Scotian Shelf, using as measures of effort days & hours fished, drag width, and number of men aboard the vessel. Results of scallop resource surveys from 1978 to 1980 are also presented & discussed

The introduction to this paper reviews the catch history of the American plaice fishery of southern Newfoundland (Division 3Ps) from the 1960s to 1987. The main section presents an assessment of the plaice stock, with information on catch & weights at age, catch effort, and numbers caught per tow & biomass determined from research vessel surveys. Yield per recruit analyses, calculation of partial recruitment, and results of a sequential population analysis are also provided. The final section contains a brief prognosis for the stock
A Preliminary discussion of the relationship between population energetics and the management of southern Gulf of St. Lawrence cod by Patrick F Lett( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper attempts to interpret the effects of multispecies interaction in the light of the internal dynamics of the Gulf of St. Lawrence cod stock as it relates to its management. The interpretation is based on catch-at-age data from six categories of landings, catch effort data from the fishery, analysis of trends in the relationship between fishing mortality per unit effort and time, estimation of fish selection by gear, sequential population analysis, juvenile surveys, and prediction of year-class size. A detailed biological analysis is presented, including development of models for cod growth, cod adult stock production & egg production, larvae production, and factors affecting year-class size formation

Predation of scallops by American plaice and yellowtail flounder by K. S Naidu( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study characterizes the nature & magnitude of fish predation on scallops on St. Pierre Bank. In the study, stomachs of American plaice and yellowtail flounder incidentally taken in scallop dredges in 1984 & 1985 were examined for the presence of sea scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) or the smaller Iceland scallop (Chlamys islandica). Percent occurrence by predator & prey size groups was calculated separately for each year & for the two years combined using total numbers of fish examined. The results of prey size frequencies indicate the number of years that the scallops may be subject to fish predation
