Atlantic Salmon Fishway Counts

Newfoundland and Labrador Region

Fishway counts to September 20th, 2020 and counts to the same date for the previous generation average, moratorium average, pre-moratorium average and the previous year. Blank cells indicate no counts as of September 20th. Please note that monitoring activities at some of our facilities have been affected by the COVID-19 public health emergency. Due to delayed installation of some counting fences and opening of monitoring sites, salmon counts to date on some rivers may appear lower than previous years in cases where fish moved upstream prior to installation of counting facilities. DFO Science will review the 2020 data after the angling season to determine the effect of these delays on salmon counts.
