Atlantic Salmon Enumeration Activities - Counting Fence

Contracting Period

The period of the Contract is from April 1, 2021 through to March 31, 2022 with the option to renew the contract for four (4) additional one year periods at the sole discretion of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO)

Option periods if exercised will be April 1, 2022 through to March 31, 2023 and April 1, 2023 through to March 31, 2024 and April 1, 2024 through to March 31, 2025 and April 1, 2025 through to March 31, 2026.

Project work will take place during the spring and summer of 2021 and each option year if exercised. 


Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has a requirement to conduct smolt and/or adult Atlantic Salmon enumeration activities (see Appendix A: location map). This will involve the installation, operation and removal of a counting fence as well as associated scientific sampling activities. 


DFO is responsible for providing scientific advice regarding the status of Atlantic Salmon stocks within the Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Region to aid in the management and conservation of these stocks. Currently, information on the status of Atlantic Salmon is collected through the use of monitoring facilities, such as counting fences and fishways on various rivers located throughout the region. This information is then used to infer the overall trends in abundance of Atlantic Salmon stocks within NL. 


Depending on environmental conditions, these activities will occur from mid-April/early May through August on a daily basis. However, it should be noted that in some years for some facilities there may be a time period between the smolt and adult activities where no operations are required. An operational schedule will be agreed upon at the start of the contracting period between the contractor and the Scientific Authority. Contractor must be willing to provide services during various hours, if required.

DFO will make site visits during adult salmon enumeration activities and provide guidance and advice with respect to project operations. Contractor should be familiar with project operations and be capable of completing all required operations and maintenance without DFO assistance.
