This activity connects with our sea-cage reared iBoF Atlantic salmon that were grown out in Dark Harbour, Grand Manan NB. Mature females were radio tagged and released into the Petitcodiac watershed. During the months of October and November, staff were out in the river with a hand held receiver (yagi) that allowed them to identify the exact location of each individual salmon in the river. This allows us to monitor their behaviour: where they are spawning and the ability to track their movements and migration. Check out the link below for more information on this project.
