Atlantic salmon smolt data from the Restigouche River, New Brunswick

Atlantic salmon smolt data from the Restigouche River, New Brunswick Each year, rotary screw traps (smolt wheels) are installed in the Kedgwick River, Upsalquitch River and main Restigouche channel from early/mid May to mid/late June. All traps are checked daily, and all fish species are counted. The majority of Atlantic salmon smolts are measured and a fraction are weighted. Everyday, Atlantic salmon smolts are tagged with unique streamer tags and released upstream of the trap they were caught in with the hope that a fraction of them will be recaptured so the trap efficiency and abundance can be estimated (capture-mark-recapture experiment). 2023-01-03 Fisheries and Oceans Canada Guillaume.Dauphin@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyEarth Science > Biological Classification > Animals/Vertebrates > Fish > Ray-finned Fishes > Salmons/TroutsEARTH SCIENCE > BIOSPHERE > ECOSYSTEMS > FRESHWATER ECOSYSTEMS > RIVERS/STREAMSalmo salarNorth Atlantic Ocean > Gulf of St. LawrenceFisheriesRivers Data dictionaryCSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Atlantic_Salmon_Smolt_Data/data_dictionary.csv Atlantic salmon smolt data from the Restigouche River, summary by site by yearCSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Atlantic_Salmon_Smolt_Data/open_data_ver1_report_all_years.csv Species listCSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Atlantic_Salmon_Smolt_Data/species_list.csv Atlantic salmon smolt dataESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Atlantic_Salmon_Smolt_Data/MapServer/0 Atlantic salmon smolt dataESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Atlantic_Salmon_Smolt_Data/MapServer/1
