Proceedings of the regional peer review meeting to develop advice on fish swimming performance curves; February 9, 2011

Chairperson:  K.A. Martin and R. Wysocki
Editor: H. Cleator


A Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) regional science peer review meeting was held on 9 February 2011 via WebEx and teleconference. The purpose of the meeting was to review a working paper that presented the results of analyses on fish swimming performance curves to determine;

  1. if the database used for the analyses was complete;
  2. the scientific validity of the analyses, results, and conclusions reached; and
  3. the limitations of the study.

Meeting participants included DFO Science (Central and Arctic, National Capital, and Gulf regions), Katopodis Ecohydraulics Ltd., North/South Consultants Inc., the U.S. Department of Energy Oak Ridge National Laboratory, U.S. Geological Survey Conte Anadromous Fish Research Center, and the universities of British Columbia, Michigan, and Leiden (Netherlands).

A working paper was drafted and distributed prior to the meeting. During the meeting, participants discussed the assumptions, analyses, uncertainties, and limitations of the database and study results.

This Proceedings report summarizes the relevant discussions and presents the key conclusions reached at the meeting. The swim performance methods and results are published as a Research Document and the advice from the meeting is published as a Science Advisory Report on the DFO Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat Website.
