Spawning observations of Capelin Observers Network (CON)

The Capelin Observers Network (CON) was established to gather more information about the beaches and other spawning sites in the estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence in order to foster reproduction of this species. The information gathered through the Capelin Observer’s Network could eventually contribute to an understanding of the impacts of climate change, shoreline erosion and beach alteration on capelin habits, which will indirectly improve our knowledge of the general functioning of the St. Lawrence ecosystem. For more information, please see the data context.

Parameters: presence, observations.
