Green sea urchin biomass assessment at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord in 2019

In the summer of 2019, Agence Mamu Innu Kaikusseht (AMIK) carried out the biomass assessment of green sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis) at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord. This study follows on from the green sea urchin assessment that began in 2016. The study was carried out in the sub-area 9-1 with the standardized protocol of the Maurice-Lamontagne Institute (MLI). The monitoring made it possible, among other things, to assess the state of the resource and to understand the issues related to the green sea urchin.

For this study, each station was bounded by transects of 100 m long. On each of these transects, quadrats were placed at every 20 m. A total of 138 quadrats for 23 transects have been done. The information collected (quantity, weight, diameter, type of substrate, etc.) is presented in the given database.

This project is part of the Coastal Environmental Baseline Program Initiative under the Oceans Protection Plan of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
