8 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to summarize data from the various offshore research activities & from the commercial offshore fishery to aid in the assessment of the capelin stock off north-east Newfoundland & southern Labrador. Trends in abundance from various sources, and the timing & distribution of acoustic surveys, are compared to other indicators of distribution to determine the efficiency of the acoustic surveys
Newfoundland east coast herring : 1990 acoustic survey results by John P Wheeler( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper documents the results of an acoustic survey of herring stock complexes in White Bay-Notre Dame Bay and Bonavista Bay-Trinity Bay, Newfoundland, during fall 1990. Survey methods are described and results are tabulated. In the survey, integrated density estimates were calculated along a series of randomly selected parallel transects within each stock area. A target strength/fish length relationship was calculated from net-enclosed herring in Smith Sound, Trinity Bay and used for the conversion of backscattering to biomass. This relationship was also used to convert backscattering to biomass for previous acoustic surveys conducted in 1988 & 1990

Assessment of the 4RS, 3Pn cod stock by Alain Fréchet( Book )

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

This report assesses the status of the cod stock in the northern Gulf of St. Lawrence & south-west Newfoundland area. It includes information on nominal catches, data from the commercial fishery & research surveys (including catch & effort, abundance, recruitment, estimated biomass), estimation of various biological parameters (catch & weight at age, age composition, length at age), and results of sequential population analysis. Catch projections are made to 1987
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
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

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
