Stock assessment of Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic salmon – 2016: Fs70-6/2017-035E-PDF

"There are 15 Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) management areas, known as Salmon Fishing Areas (SFAs) 1-14B, in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL). Within these areas there are 394 rivers known to contain wild Atlantic Salmon populations that are characterized by differences in life history traits, including freshwater residence time, timing of return migration, age at first spawning, and the extent of ocean migration. Atlantic Salmon stock status is currently assessed based on the proportion of the conservation egg requirement achieved in a given year and trends in abundance of various life stages. Annual comparisons are generally made to the previous five-year mean for Newfoundland and six-year mean for Labrador, which correspond to the average Atlantic Salmon generation time in those areas. This Science Advisory Report is from the February 28 to March 1, 2017 Regional Peer Review Process “Assessment of Atlantic Salmon in NL”"--Context, p. [1]-2.
