Salmon Tracking and Stock Assessment

Recipient: Gander Bay Indian Band Council
Approved Amount: $17,000

The Gander Bay Indian Band Council will assess the status of Atlantic salmon stocks in Salmon Brook by counting all salmon returns in the brook from June through September 2015. The information will be forwarded to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to assist with its assessment of salmon stocks in the province and with the eventual development of a salmon management plan to address the salmon declines.
