Stock Assessment of Atlantic Salmon in Newfoundland and Labrador

Regional Peer Review - Newfoundland and Labrador Region

February 28 - March 2, 2023
Virtual Meeting

Co-Chairs: Hannah Murphy and Harry Murray


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 for 2020 returns in March 2021 (DFO 2022). During March 2022, a stock status update was completed for Atlantic Salmon in NL.

Resource Management will use information from this Regional Peer Review Process to inform salmon management plans.
