Establishing nekton biodiversity baseline for estuarine environments in southwestern New Brunswick

The Musquash Estuary Marine Protected Area in southwestern New Brunswick was first protected in 2006 as it was identified as the largest ecologically pristine estuary ecosystem in the Bay of Fundy.

Ten sites within the estuary and three reference sites outside the protected area were sampled through fyke netting. Six of those sites, four inside and two outside the protected area, were also sampled using seine nets. Sites were sampled on a monthly basis, May through October, from 2019 to 2021, resulting in three seasons of data. Sampling occurred over two days and at low tide. The first day, a seine was conducted and the fyke net was deployed. The fyke net was retrieved the second day following two complete tidal cycles. Fish and invertebrates caught in the fyke and seine were measured in length (cm), weight (g), and condition. Condition was measured on a scale from 1 to 3, where 3 indicated good condition, 2 indicated a lesser condition caused by parasites or abrasions, and 1 indicated the individual's condition was so degraded that it may not survive.

This project aims to create a baseline dataset of fish and macroinvertebrates from which to assess any future changes and monitor the chronic impacts of climate change. It is part of Fisheries and Oceans Canada's Coastal Environmental Baseline Program.

Dix sites dans l'estuaire et trois sites de référence en dehors de la zone protégée ont été échantillonnés au moyen de filets verveux. Six de ces sites, quatre à l'intérieur et deux à l'extérieur de la zone protégée, ont également été échantillonnés à l'aide de sennes. Les sites ont été échantillonnés mensuellement, de mai à octobre, de 2019 à 2021, ce qui a donné lieu à trois saisons de données. L'échantillonnage s'est déroulé sur deux jours et à marée basse. Le premier jour, une senne a été menée et le verveux a été déployé. Le filet verveux a été récupéré le deuxième jour après deux cycles de marée complets. Les poissons et les invertébrés capturés dans le verveux et la senne ont été mesurés en longueur (cm), en poids (g) et en état. L'état a été mesuré sur une échelle de 1 à 3, où 3 indiquait un bon état, 2 un état moindre causé par des parasites ou des écorchures, et 1 que l'état de l'individu était tellement dégradé qu'il risquait de ne pas survivre. Ce projet vise à créer un ensemble de données de base sur les poissons et les macroinvertébrés à partir duquel évaluer tout changement futur et surveiller les impacts chroniques du changement climatique.
