Ecological Risk Assessment Framework (ERAF) feasibility and suitability evaluation based on a subset of Significant Ecological Components (SEC) from the Hecate Strait - Queen Charlotte Sound Glass Sponge Reefs Marine Protected Area (HS-QCS MPA).

Ecological Risk Assessment Framework (ERAF) feasibility and suitability evaluation based on a subset of Significant Ecological Components (SEC) from the Hecate Strait - Queen Charlotte Sound Glass Sponge Reefs Marine Protected Area (HS-QCS MPA). The Pacific Region ERAF provides a comprehensive approach for assessing all threats to marine ecosystems by evaluating cumulative risk from multiple activities to multiple ecosystem components for ecosystem-based management (EBM), improving upon international and national best practices in risk assessment that focus solely on single activities (e.g., ERAFs for assessing fisheries impacts) or single ecosystem-components (e.g., habitat-based risk assessments). This project applies the Level 2 Risk Assessment framework (O et al. 2015) to the Hecate Strait - Queen Charlotte Sound Glass Sponge Reefs Marine Protected Area (HS-QCS MPA) to determine the relative risk to the HS-QCS MPA ecosystem from anthropogenic activities. 2022-04-15 Fisheries and Oceans Canada joanne.lessard@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentERAFEBMPacific North Coast Integrated Management AreaEcosystem Risk Assessment Framework HS-QCS MPA ERAF DataCSV https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/45e3f790-8831-4ea6-abc2-b7208b31dd11/resource/d5b3672c-e2a8-4e0d-95ba-55d256499e00/download/hs-qcs_input_file_v8_wstressortype_reviewed.csv HS-QCS MPA ERAF DataCSV https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/45e3f790-8831-4ea6-abc2-b7208b31dd11/resource/2b37d3dc-781c-46cd-903f-f6687fdf2251/download/hs-qcs_input_file_v8_wstressortype_reviewed_fr.csv HS-QCS MPA ERAF MetadataHTML https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/45e3f790-8831-4ea6-abc2-b7208b31dd11/resource/8ed5d646-08df-4556-9e10-c5b4214cfe7c/download/hs-qcs-metadata-for-translation.htm HS-QCS MPA ERAF MetadataHTML https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/45e3f790-8831-4ea6-abc2-b7208b31dd11/resource/9b2084f6-5751-4f87-be88-27fad2a0f1db/download/hs-qcs-metadata-for-translation-edited_fr.htm HS-QCS MPA ERAF Risk AnalysisHTML https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/45e3f790-8831-4ea6-abc2-b7208b31dd11/resource/388f3786-2040-4b6f-b585-39faf312fbf5/download/hsqcs_eraf_risk_calculations_and_figures_r.htm HS-QCS MPA ERAF Risk AnalysisHTML https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/45e3f790-8831-4ea6-abc2-b7208b31dd11/resource/bda88794-70dc-4d97-9089-01cb8f064f2f/download/hsqcs_eraf_risk_calculations_and_figures_fr.htm
