Predicted effects of proposed tidal power structures on groundfish catches in Charlotte County, N.B Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • It is predicted that the construction of power structures will have no measurable effect on Charlotte County ground fish landings as a whole. It is expected that the 1,700,000 lb or 12% of the Charlotte County ground fish catch, taken in 1958 inside the dam sites, will be greatly reduced. Specifically, it is forecast that the pollock line fishery in Head Harbour Passage, which yielded 1,500,000 lb in 1958, will be greatly reduced, the haddock dragger fishery will be reduced or eliminated in the high pool, and the flounder fishery in Passamaquoddy and Cobscook Bays will probably increase.
