  • Eel/Elver Project
    project is intended to gather data that reveals the abundance or abundance trends of juvenile American Eels Elvers in the southern Gulf of St Lawrence region Data will be collected by setting habitat traps and ramp traps and by counting elvers and associated information about their length weight and pigmentation stage Very little is known about elvers or about basic biological information such as growth rate variations length etc The inventory to estimate the relative abundance of juvenile American Eel elvers is intended to better understand the trends in annual recruitment of the young of year eels over time in order to produce a qualitative appraisal of the annual recruitment of American eel to the Gulf of St Lawrence and inland fresh water systems in eastern Canada The inventory results will provide data that is currently unknown regarding Atlantic coastal recruitment success and enhance scientific understanding of American Eel population dynamics It is envisioned that the monitoring program will be a yearly exercise Ongoing use of the literature produced in the project also to be produced in the Mi gmaq language and its dissemination across the Mi gmaq Nation will ensure broad and ongoing public awareness of elvers and their
