Project Code
Project Duration
March 2016 - March 2018
Project Description
Adult hatchery brood stock of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) were tagged with acoustic tags and DST tags and released in the Bay of Quinte to begin to understand movement patterns of adult Atlantic salmon in Lake Ontario. Do they move long distances throughout the lake or do they keep a small home range? This project supplements the LOSAL project also on-going in Lake Ontario.
