Le présent document a été produit dans la foulée du programme national sur l'état et les tendances des écosystèmes et traite de l'écozone de l'estuaire et du golfe Saint-Laurent. Il s'articule autour de l'état et des tendances de plusieurs espèces marines ainsi que de certaines variables physico-chimiques importantes de l'écosystème. Le rapport national sur l'état et les tendances des écosystèmes servira à établir les priorités pour un programme national sur la biodiversité et intègrera de l'information écosystémique de portée nationale et provinciale. Il traitera de nombreuses écozones terrestres et marines d'envergure.

[Résumé disponible seulement en anglais]
In order to have a global view of ecosystem changes associated with the collapse of groundfish species in the Gulf of St.Lawrence during the early 1990s, Ecopath mass balance models were constructed in corporating uncertainty in the input data.These models covered two ecosystems (northern and southern Gulf of St.Lawrence; NAFO divisions 4RSand 4T), and two time periods (before the collapse, in the mid-1980s, and after it, in the mid 1990s). Our analyses revealed that the ecosystem structure shifted dramatically from one previously dominated by piscivorous groundfish and small-bodied forage species during the mid-1980s to one now dominated only by small-bodied pelagic species during the mid-1990s in both southern and northern Gulf.The species structure in the northern Gulf versus southern Gulf was different, which may explain why these two ecosystems did not recover the same way from the collapse in the early1990s. Productivity declined in the northern Gulf after the collapse but increased in the southern Gulf. The collapse of groundfish stocks resulted in declines in the mean trophic level of the landings in both the northern and the southern Gulf. Even though fishing mortality was then intentionally reduced, this part of the total mortality was taken up by predation.The temporal changes in the internal structure of both ecosystems are reflected in their overall emergent properties.©2009 Elsevier Ltd.

[Résumé disponible seulement en anglais]
We present a data set describing the seasonal climatology and the spatial pattern in mortality and recruitment in early stages of Calanus finmarchicus in the lower St Lawrence estuary (LSLE) and the Gulf of St Lawrence (GSL), respectively. Contrary to the common assumption of constant mortality, daily mortality during development from egg to N3 or N6 showed important seasonal and spatial variations mostly independent from patterns in population egg production. Patterns in recruitment rate to late naupliar stages were mainly associated with patterns in survival, and dictated patterns in abundance of nauplii N4–6 (seasonal, LSLE) and early copepodite C1–2 (spatial, GSL). Consequently, recruitment to late naupliar and early copepodid stages was largely independent from patterns in population egg production. A multiple regression model showed that phytoplankton biomass and female abundance exerted opposite effects in the control of mortality, illustrating the beneficial effect of high phytoplankton biomass on the survival due to a relaxation of the cannibalism pressure or mortality owing to food shortage. A sensitivity analysis using a stage-based model clearly showed variations in the amplitude and the timing in recruitment to late naupliar stages solely due to different mortality formulations. Moreover, our simulations suggested that temperature alone should not be of primary importance in determining patterns in survival because of its general scaling effect on metabolism. Our study reinforces the importance of an adequate description of mortality and survival in studies of population dynamics and illustrates the importance of developing dynamic mortality formulations integrating multiple effects for future use in models of C. finmarchicus.©2009 Oxford University Press

La prédiction des fluctuations de recrutement des poissons marins d’importance commerciale demeure le Saint Graal des sciences halieutiques. Au cours d’études précédentes, nous avons identifié des relations statistiques reliant le recrutement du maquereau bleu (Scomber scombrus) au climat régional, à la biomasse du zooplancton ainsi qu’à la production en nauplii de copépodes durant une décennie (1982-1991) qui incluait la classe d’âge exceptionnelle de 1982. Ici nous testons la validité de ces relations en ajoutant une deuxième décennie (1992-2003) d’observations qui incluent une autre classe d’âge exceptionnelle en 1999. Nous présentons les premières preuves basées sur des données de terrain qu’il existe un lien entre la disponibilité des proies planctoniques en mer, la croissance des jeunes larves et la force des classes d’âge chez une espèce de poisson marin exploitée commercialement. Nous démontrons que le recrutement dépend fortement de la production en nauplii des espèces de copépodes qui contribuent à l’alimentation des larves de maquereau. Les deux fortes classes d’âge ont été caractérisées par une disponibilité exceptionnelle de ces proies spécifiques. Nous suggérons que le recrutement du maquereau peut être anticipé 3 ans à l’avance selon la disponibilité des proies durant les premières semaines de vie planctonique et prédisons une forte classe d’âge pour les poissons nés en 2006.©2008 NRC Canada

MAPS, F., J.A. RUNGE, B. ZAKARDJIAN, P. JOLY, 2005. Egg production and hatching success of Temora longicornis (Copepoda, Calanoida) in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence. Mar. Ecol. Prog. Ser., 285: 117-128.

[Résumé disponible seulement en anglais]
Egg production rate (EPR) and subsequent egg-hatching success of Temora longicornis from the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence were measured in the laboratory and at sea during 2 cruises in late June and early July of 2000 and 2001. A quantitative, functional Ivlev relationship between EPR, food concentration (μg C 1-1) and temperature was fit to the laboratory results. This relationship can serve as a template for expressing environmental control of T. longicornis egg production in models of the species population dynamics. Among the findings was a very low EPR at high temperature (18 °C) when food was limiting (<200 μg C1-1). The EPR of T. longicornis in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence in early summer varied as a function of chlorophyll a concentration (integrated 0 to 50 m), and corresponded well with the functional laboratory relationship using a carbon/chlorophyll a conversion factor of 80. Mean hatching success in the laboratory was 42.8 % for experimental temperatures <14 °C, but declined dramatically to 7.5% at temperatures over 14°C. No relationship between hatching success and food concentration was observed. In the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence in late June, hatching success varied between 0 and 56 % for mean temperatures between 3.3 and 10.9 °C (median 6.6 °C). While the presence of resting eggs at this time of year is the most probable explanation of our observations of low hatching success, other factors that may inhibit egg hatching, including methodology, insufficient fertilization and food quality, may also be implicated. We conclude that for T. longicornis, EPR is food-limited in early summer in this region. Comparison with other studies indicated that environmental controls on fecundity of T. longicornis may differ among regions where this species is the dominant copepod.©2005 Inter-Research
