Acquisition of knowledge on the habitat of striped bass (Morone saxatilis) in the Baie des Chaleurs sector in order to support the conservation and protection of the species.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not there are spawning grounds, nursery areas and growth areas of the striped bass in the Cascapedia River estuary, in 2010. The inventory of eggs and larvae, was initiated in mid-May and came to an end in mid-July. It was achieved through the use of a cone plankton net. Juvenile sampling was done using a shore seine. No eggs or striped bass larva were harvested. No juvenile striped bass were harvested either.
