Capelin (Mallotus Villosus) Habitat Monitoring and Restoration Project on the North Shore of the Gulf of St-Lawrence, Quebec

The database contains ecological data on capelin spawning, obtained in 2018 and 2019 from the study sites along the North Coast of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

The data include biological and physical parameters, such as morphometric measurements of adult individuals, egg abundance and egg concentration, presence of larvae, granulometry of monitored beaches, spawning intensity, general site description, and environmental variables.

The PDF documents include an analysis report of the first year of monitoring (2018), as well as a technical advice on the first capelin habitat site that the ZIP Committee plans to restore.
