Stock Status Update of Atlantic Salmon in Newfoundland and Labrador
Regional Science Response Process - Newfoundland and Labrador Region
March 1-2, 2022
Chairpersons: Roanne Collins and Corey Morris
There are 15 Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) management areas, known as Salmon Fishing Areas (SFAs) 1-14B, in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL). Within these areas there are approximately 407 rivers with reported Atlantic Salmon populations characterized by differences in life history traits including freshwater residence time, age at first spawning, and the extent of ocean migrations.
The last full stock assessment of Atlantic Salmon in NL was completed in March 2021.
Resource Management will use information from this Science Response Process to inform the current salmon management plan.
Provide an update on new information available concerning the status of Atlantic Salmon stocks for SFAs 1-2 and 14B (Labrador), SFAs 3-14A (Newfoundland).
The meeting will focus on the general state of salmon stocks in NL.
