Update of indicators of Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) in DFO Gulf Region Salmon Fishing Areas 15 - 18 for 2016


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 and 2015 for each of the four Salmon Fishing Areas (SFA 15-18) were prepared (DFO 2015a; DFO 2015b, DFO 2016). DFO Fisheries and Aquaculture Management (FAM) requested an update of the status of the Atlantic Salmon stocks in DFO Gulf Region for 2016. Indicators for adult and juvenile Atlantic Salmon in SFAs 15 to 18 are provided in this report. The updates were reviewed during a Science Response peer review meeting held in Moncton (N.B.) on February 17, 2017. No other publications will be produced from this science response process.
