Assessment of the Restigouche River salmon stock in 1982 / by E. M. P. Chadwick and R. G. Randall.: Fs70-8/83-30E-PDF

"Preliminary 1982 landings in Restigouche River were 4,600 grilse and 9,700 salmon. Spawning requirements were estimated to be 16,300 fish. Two estimates of spawning escapements indicated that, at best, egg depositions were met in 1982, or at worst, they were only 18% of recommended values. Two estimates were made for returns in 1983: at best, returns would allow a harvest equal to 1982; at worst, there would be insufficient spawners without any harvest. Comparison of present landings to historical values suggested that the lower estimate was most accurate"--Abstract.
