National strategy for counting fence deployment on Quebec salmon rivers
Recipient: Fédération québécoise pour le saumon atlantique
Approved Amount: $21,500 Year Approved: 2022
The second generation automatic IchtyoS meter developed by WSP is an efficient tool to count the number of salmon entering in the river in summer, therefore the number of spawners which reproduce in the fall. Data on the run is essential for the river-by-river fine management undertaken by the government of Quebec.
CMFFP has been using that technology to monitor salmon runs since 2017. It is a long-term project resulting from the Quebec Atlantic salmon management plan 2016-2026.
FQSA cooperates closely wih managers and MFFP in this large-scale national project.
