Characterizing harbour seal populations in Saint John Harbour

Data produced for the project entitled " Characterizing Harbour Seal populations in the Saint John Harbour " consists of observations of seals at 6 different haulout sites along the Saint John Harbour. Locations include : Shag Rocks, Musquash Ledges, Sea Dog Cove, Round Reef, Island Bar and Dog Rocks. Biweekly observations were made using long-range spotting scopes, binoculars and drones from shore. All observations were made during an afternoon low tide, and were conducted year-round (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021).

The data collected from this study will provide a basis for monitoring any seasonal changes in seal numbers and distribution along the southern New Brunswick coast. This study was funded by Fisheries and Oceans Canada's Coastal Environmental Baseline Program.
