Found 10 records similar to Known and exploited Stimpson's surfclam beds in Quebec coastal waters

Federal

A research survey on Stimpson's surfclam (Mactromeris polynyma) was conducted from June 15 to June 26 2017 in the Estuary of the St. Lawrence River on the Forestville deposit (Fishing Area 1A). The primary objective of this survey was to investigate the spatial distribution of pre-commercial (< 80 mm) and commercial (≥ 80 mm) sizes of Stimpson's surfclams as well as to assess the abundance and diversity of benthic species associated with the sandy habitat of the Stimpson's surfclam. Only benthic species data associated with Stimpson's surfclam habitat are presented in this dataset. Data were collected according to a systematic sampling design consisting of 77 stations, between 7 and 45 m depth.

Iceland and sea Scallops (Chlamys islandica and Placopecten magellanicus) represent an important biological resource for commercial fisheries and coastal ecology. The beds of this layer are described as being known and commercially exploited historically and / or currently, and have undergone validation and delimitation treatment with a good degree of precision. They are located in the Estuary and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, on the North Shore, Anticosti, the North Shore of Gaspésie and the Magdalen Islands. The beds are considered among the most abundant beds of scallops used for commercial fishing (noteworthy: high densities and fishing activity do not strictly stick to these beds).

Summary

The Quebec region of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is responsible for the assessment of several fish and invertebrate stocks exploited in the Estuary and the northern Gulf of St. Lawrence. The commercial catches sampling program is one of the sources of information used to complete these assessments. The data collected by this program, at wharf or at sea, offers among other things the advantage of a relatively large spatio-temporal coverage and provides some of the necessary knowledge to assess the demography and the structure of the exploited populations. This program is implemented by specialized DFO staff whose main mandate is to collect biological data on groundfish, pelagic fish and marine invertebrate species that are commercially exploited in the various marine communities.

Distribution of clam beds in coastal Beds in British Columbia showing relative abundance (RA) and aboriginal, biological, commercial and recreational relative importance (RI) and overall RI. RI is based on project region and not on the province as a whole. and productivity. Other attributes include season dates, productivity and species.

This dataset concerns monitoring of the Penouille eelgrass beds. Because of the ecological importance not only of eelgrass beds, but also of the animal communities they support, eelgrass beds are often used as indicators of coastal ecosystem health. Two sets of data deal more specifically with animal species, mainly fish, which use this habitat for different stages of their life cycle. They contain data related to each of the three sites sampled in the spring and fall using fyke nets since 2013.

The assessment of the status of eelgrass (Zostera marina) beds at the bay-scale in turbid, shallow estuaries is problematic. The bay-scale assessment (i.e., tens of km) of eelgrass beds usually involves remote sensing methods such as aerial photography or satellite imagery. These methods can fail if the water column is turbid, as is the case for many shallow estuaries on Canada’s eastern seaboard. A novel towfish package was developed for the bay-scale assessment of eelgrass beds irrespective of water column turbidity.

There is no safe way to tan. Health Canada recommends you do not use tanning equipment (like sunlamps or tanning beds). However, if you do, it is important to know the risks.

The purpose of this study was to characterize the kelp bed at Batture-aux-Alouettes, a preferred food source for the green sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis). The green urchin is fished commercially in Quebec and the fishing effort is concentrated on the Batture-aux-Alouettes near Tadoussac, at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord. The study was conducted in two separate phases in 2018 and 2019. The main objective of this study was to determine the abundance and biomass of the kelp bed at Batture-aux-Alouettes.
