This project will include two 170 km subsea cables across the Cabot Strait
, with almost 50 km of overland transmission in Nova Scotia and close to another 300 km of overland transmission on the island of Newfoundland.
About 16 boats with 100 hunters were taking part in the hunt in the Cabot Strait
, between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
Further analyses including 4Vn samples, however, indicated that endoparasitic helminths may have little value as tags in the classification of plaice overwintering in Laurentian Channel waters of the Cabot Strait and Cape Breton Shelf, where mixing of 4T and 4Vn fish may occur.
The winter distribution of plaice in the Laurentian Channel is continuous from the Gaspe to the Cabot Strait (Clay, 1991) and eastward along the Cape Breton Shelf (NAFO subdivision 4Vn) (Swain et al., 1998).
Amid anticipated epitaphs such as "You'll never see him again" and "Clergyman makes supper for sharks," MacKinnon headed out the Cabot Strait
and set the sails of his small sloop, Research II, for the open seas.
Beech, sugar maple, and eastern hemlock have invaded all three Maritime provinces, but apparently arrived too late to cross the newly formed Cabot Strait
Lawrence (unit 1) from those from the Cabot Strait and Laurentian Channel (unit 2).
However, the inclusion of Cabot Strait in unit 1 in the winter should be re-evaluated with further sampling.
