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 May to mid/late June.
On the Upsalquitch, the smolt wheel is operated in partnership with Eel River Bar First Nation and on the main Restigouche channel the two smolt wheels are operated in partnership with Listuguj First Nation. All traps are checked daily, and all fish species are counted. The majority of Atlantic salmon smolts are measured and a fraction are weighed. Every day, 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).
