Scientific research for the conservation of the species
Activity necessary or beneficial to the species
Activity affecting the species is incidental to the carrying out of the activity

The project will determine species composition and fish habitat as part of an environmental assessment for a bridge replacement for Davison Bridge, crossing the Herbert River. Minnow traps will be set upstream and downstream of the bridge. Fish captured will be identified, measured, and released.

Start Date: 2008-08-25   End Date: 2008-09-30

Issuing Authority: Department of Fisheries and Oceans

Authority Used:

  • Species at Risk Act

Location of Activity (province, territory or ocean):

  • Nova Scotia

Affected Species:

a) The selected collection methods have minimal impact on the species or its habitat. It is considered unlikely that inner Bay of Fundy salmon will be encountered. Any that are caught will be released with care. No habitat impact is expected. b) The effect of research activities on the species and its habitat is minimized by use of approved research methodologies. Minnow traps are a relatively low impact method for sampling fish. No impact on salmon is anticipated. c) The research is not expected to jeopardize the survival or recovery of the species. No impact on iBoF salmon is expected, as it is considered unlikely that the species will be encountered.
