National strategy for counting fence deployment on Quebec salmon rivers

Recipient: Fédération québécoise pour le saumon atlantique
Approved Amount: $15,755
Year Approved: 2019

The second generation IchtyoS automatic counter developed by the WSP firm is an efficient tool for counting salmon which enter the river during summer, thus the number of spawners reproducing in the fall. This data is necessary for the river by river management conducted by the government of Quebec.

That technology of salmon monitoring has been used by the Department of Forests, Wildlife and Parks (MFFP) since 2017 in several rivers in Quebec. It is a long-term project related to the 2016-2026 Atlantic salmon management plan of Quebec. The FQSA will work closely with managers and MFFP within this major project.
