Removal of American eel from Port Dalhousie - 2018 and 2019 summary report / by Erin N. Budgell, Scott Blair, Warren J.S. Currie, Lisa M. O’Connor, Thomas C. Pratt, and Jonathan D. Midwood.: Fs97-6/3412E-PDF
"Fisheries and Oceans Canada conducted a project in 2018 and 2019 dedicated to the removal of American Eel (Anguilla rostrata) from Port Dalhousie to mitigate potential impacts of in-water construction on American eel while an essential harbour revitalization was being completed in Port Dalhousie Harbour. American Eel is an endangered species under the Province of Ontario's Endangered Species Act and are known to be present in the area. A combination of passive eel traps and boat electrofishing were used to capture eels. A total of seven eels were captured and relocated over the duration of the study. Of the seven individuals captured, three were released at Jones Beach and four were released in Hamilton Harbour. Multiple acoustic telemetry receivers were used to determine if acoustically tagged American Eel were present in the Harbour. Five of the seven relocated individuals were large enough to be acoustically tagged, and four of the tagged individuals returned to the harbour and remained for varying durations after being moved"--Abstract, page vi.
