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 groundfish landings as a whole. It is expected that the 1,700,000?lb or 12% of the Charlotte County groundfish 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.
