The CREAE aims to acquire new knowledge on sport fish species to ensure the sound management of wildlife resources.
It aims to develop and improve tools for managing fish stocks to optimize wildlife exploitation for the benefit of users while ensuring the sustainability of the resource for future generations.
The ultimate goal of the CREAE research program is to move towards the predictive management of Quebec sport fish stocks.
Achieving this goal requires advancing scientific knowledge hand in hand with its integration into management methods. Predictive management will therefore be achieved by improving the scientific knowledge of Quebec fish species and applying these new concepts to their management.
The scientific committee sets out the Chair’s directions, scientific programming and opportunities. Its mandate is to determine and evaluate the Chair’s priority activities, taking into account the expertise of CREAE researchers and the needs of the MELCCFP, to foster the creation of scientific and financial partnerships and optimize the transfer of research results to users.
In addition to the director and the two CREAE co-directors, the scientific committee comprises five representatives of the MELCCFP:
CREAE benefits from UQAC’s dynamic research activities and proximity to major study sites.
CREAE’s eight-metre research boat is adapted to its needs. The Boréalis can be deployed on large freshwater surfaces such as Lac Saint-Jean or in marine environments such as the Saguenay Fjord and the St. Lawrence Estuary.
This laboratory houses specialized optical equipment for processing and reading the calcified structures of fish, particularly otoliths.
CREAE benefits from LERGA’s expertise in geography, as well as its state-of-the-art field research equipment.
LabMaTer provides CREAE with expertise and equipment for laser ablation and inductively coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (LA-ICP-MS). This technique enables the analysis of otolith microchemistry.
CREAE has access to the territory and infrastructures of UQAC’s FERS to study boreal ecosystems, just 20 minutes from the university!
