Credit River Atlantic salmon movements and survival
Movements of adult and juvenile Atlantic salmon in the Credit River
October 2016 - October 2018
This is two projects utilizing the same receivers in the same river. Project 1: Adult hatchery brood stock (and some wild returning adult) Atlantic salmon were tagged and released into the Credit River, Ontario in the fall to determine the location of spawning grounds and when they return to Lake Ontario to improve fishway operations and assess spawning success. Project 2: Natural-reared (stocked as juveniles the previous year) and hatchery-reared smolts were tagged in the upper reaches of the Credit River and the timing and survival during the downstream migration to Lake Ontario was assessed.
