Salmonid counting fence - Gros Morne

Salmonid counting fence - Gros Morne Atlantic salmon are an ecologically and culturally important species in healthy aquatic systems of western Newfoundland. This measure determines the status and trend, over a 10 year period, of Atlantic salmon returning to spawn in three rivers in Gros Morne - Western Brook, Trout River and Deer Arm Brook. Secondarily, it will detect invasive anadromous species. A salmonid counting fence is rotated through the 3 rivers. The fence operates from spring to fall (June to October), and each river is sampled at least once in a five year cycle. The count of large salmon, grilse and Brook trout is obtained. 2018-06-19 Parks Canada shawn.gerrow@pc.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentAtlantic salmonWestern BrookDeer Arm BrookTrout RiverFish Fencenon-native anadromous fishNewfoundland Salmonid counting fence - Gros Morne - DataCSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/EZPpsepbj1tFhRRDvK8eGMMBFyaoliVus0o8qf-xX9P-nw?e=UVeTPg Salmonid counting fence - Gros Morne - Data dictionary CSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/EWXnlQCj1h9IrDLoAShWLQMB4VBXLFtPGOdSEO-eK6-Vdw?e=s9zj14
