i really appreciate your help. the information was really great. it is a pity the tour isn't open to the public. also, voluntering for the fish sorting in spawning season would be interesting.

Try and . Unfortunately, I don't think that tour is a routine for them. It was a field trip offered at the "Millenium Wetland Event" (i.e., year 2000 co-conferences of the Society of Wetland Scientists, Intecol, the International Peat Society, and International Mire Conservation Group). Even if you aren't proximal to the Jacques-Cartier R., the video cassette is worth seeing.

I have some experience regarding one rather specific example. I enjoyed a day-long tour given by Quebec's Ministry of Natural Resources to highlight the salmon restoration efforts on the Jacques-Cartier River. There is a hydroelectric dam on the Jacques-Cartier at the village of Cap-Santé. The dam features a fishway that ends in a trap basket. Ministry biologists manually sort trapped fish; Salmo salar are released upstream to conduct business as salmon should, and Oncorhynchus spp. are sent back down to carouse with the carps! Recreational harvest of Atlantic salmon is permitted but very strictly regulated by the Ministry with a season-long bag limit based upon a tag sytem (similar to tagging harvested deer, if you're familiar); tags to harvest (one per fish) must be purchased in advance. The Ministry had a rather nice VHS cassette outlining the whole operation, available in either English or French. It might still be available if you write them seeking it.
