Update of stock status of Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) in DFO Gulf Region (Salmon Fishing Areas 15 to 18) for 2015
The last assessment of stock status of Atlantic salmon for Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Gulf Region was completed after the 2013 return year (DFO 2014) and updates on stock status in 2014 for each of the four Salmon Fishing Areas (SFA 15-18) were prepared (DFO 2015a; DFO 2015b). DFO Fisheries and Aquaculture Management (FAM) requested an update of the status of the Atlantic Salmon stocks in DFO Gulf Region for 2015. Indicators for adult and juvenile Atlantic Salmon stocks in SFAs 15 - 18 are provided in this report. This Science Response Report results from the Science Response Process of 18 February 2016 on the Atlantic Salmon update of indicators for 2015. No other publications will be produced from this science response process.
