Dolly Varden Harvest Monitoring Biological Data 2007-2014

Dolly Varden Harvest Monitoring Biological Data 2007-2014 Situated in the Gwich’in settlement Area (GSA), the Rat River is inhabited by anadromous Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma malma) that are harvested by both Gwich’in and Inuvialuit beneficiaries. The harvest of Dolly Varden from the Rat River occurs during the summer at feeding areas along the coast (by the Inuvialuit) and during upstream migration in the Mackenzie Delta (by both Gwich’in and Inuvialuit). Dolly Varden stocks are co-managed under an Integrated Fisheries Management Plan (IFMP) whose signatories include Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Gwich'in Renewable Resources Board, Fisheries Joint Management Committee, and Parks Canada Agency. The Rat River Working Group, the co-management body that makes recommendations for harvest levels for Dolly Varden stocks in the GSA, has supported research activities that facilitate implementation of the IFMP, including studies to monitor harvest levels and assess population status. Population studies (e.g., abundance estimates, biological and genetic sampling) and coastal harvest monitoring activities allow for a comprehensive assessment of this stock. The data are used to inform co-management partners on the status of Dolly Varden from the Rat River . 2022-09-27 Fisheries and Oceans Canada colin.gallagher@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyFreshwatersFishAquatic EcosystemsRIVERS/STREAMSalvelinus spBeaufort SeaFisheries resourcesFresh water Dolly Varden Harvest Monitoring Biological Data 2007-2014ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Dolly_Varden_Harvest_Monitoring_biological_data/MapServer Dolly Varden Harvest Monitoring Biological Data 2007-2014ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Dolly_Varden_Harvest_Monitoring_biological_data/MapServer Dolly Varden Harvest Monitoring Biological Data 2007-2014CSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Dolly_Varden_Harvest_Monitoring_Data/Dolly_Varden_Harvest_Monitoring_biological_data_2007_2014.csv Data dictionaryPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Dolly_Varden_Harvest_Monitoring_Data/DataDictionary_DictionnaireDonnees.pdf
