Atlantic salmon population baseline watershed survey in Hay River, phase 4
SAB will carry out a 4th year of detailed monitoring in Hay River to compile Atlantic salmon data in a reference watershed to validate and challenge previous assumptions of populations numbers based on established formulas and data. This will be used to help us understand overall watershed health and what effects they may have on salmon production and survival. Analyzing this monitoring data will help us to determine parallels between environmental conditions and limiting factors which will aid us in preserving and advancing salmon stocks in Prince Edward Island through future restoration and monitoring initiatives. This will be the final year of data collection, whereafter in 2023 we will apply for further funding to compile, analyse, and publish the data in a habitat restoration management plan, which can be used as a reference document for all rivers on PEI, regardless of size.
