National strategy for counting fence deployment on Quebec salmon rivers 2020

Recipient: Fédération québécoise pour le saumon atlantique 
Approved Amount: $12,800
Year Approved: 2020

The second generation Ichtyos automatic counter developed by the WSP firm is an efficient tool to count salmon that enter the river in summer, thus the number of salmon that can spawn in the fall.  This information is essential for the fine-scale river by river management practiced by the government of Quebec. This technology has been used by MFFP since 2017 on several rivers of Quebec. It is a long-term project connected to the 2016-2026 Atlantic salmon management plan of Quebec. The FQSA will work closely with managers and the MFFP on this major project. The financial contribution will help continue weekly maintenance (e.g. cleaning, removal of debris, etc.) for its efficient operation by river managers.
