Shellfish Water Classification Program – Marine Water Quality Data in Nova Scotia

Shellfish Water Classification Program – Marine Water Quality Data in Nova Scotia This dataset provides marine bacteriological water quality data for bivalve shellfish harvest areas in Nova Scotia, Canada. Shellfish harvest area water temperature and salinity data are also provided as adjuncts to the interpretation of fecal coliform density data. The latter is the indicator of fecal matter contamination monitored annually by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) within the framework of the Canadian Shellfish Sanitation Program (CSSP). The geospatial positions of the sampling sites are also provided. These data are collected by ECCC for the purpose of making recommendations on the classification of shellfish harvest area waters. ECCC recommendations are reviewed and adopted by Regional Interdepartmental Shellfish Committees prior to regulatory implementation by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). 2022-05-05 Environment and Climate Change Canada ec.msqeinformation-wqmsinformation.ec@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentBacteriological Water QualityShellfishHarvesting ShellfishShellfish SanitationShellfish AreasShellfish Areas ClassificationMarine WaterWater PollutionFecal ColiformAll applicable data contentWater - QualityAssess Toxicity; Manage and Monitor for Environmental Presence of Hazardous Substances and WasteMonitor / Assess Substance and Waste Levels in Air; Water; Soil; BiotaScience and Technology BranchWater Science and Technology1.2.1.
