Found 10 records similar to Lake Trout Catch Per Unit Effort - Kluane
Effort, catch, and biometric fish data are produced using the Summer Profundal Index Netting (SPIN) methodologies developed by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. Monitoring is generally conducted generally on a five year cycle, with additional sampling as necessary. Data are from Kingsmere Lake, where the majority of the park’s recreational lake trout fishing occurs. This monitoring allows the park to collect data on the size, structure and physical condition of the lake trout population.
Brook trout are top predators in aquatic ecosystems at Kejimkujik that integrate the effects of stressors throughout the aquatic trophic structure. They are sensitive to a variety of stressors, including acidification, changes in water quality, climate change, fishing pressure, exotic species introductions, trophic structure alterations, land use change, and watershed fragmentation. The monitoring program tracks Brook trout population status, as assessed by relative abundance and trout condition at two watersheds in Kejimkujik. Volunteer anglers record morphometric and catch per unit effort data during the months of April, May and June for 3 years in a row every 5 years.
This dataset shows the locations of westslope cutthroat trout of non-stocked pure strain populations with average DNA purity ≥ 0.99%. This species is listed as threatened under the Species at Risk Act.
