Shellfish Water Classification Program – Shellfish Harvest Area Classification in Quebec

Shellfish Water Classification Program – Shellfish Harvest Area Classification in Quebec This dataset provides geospatial polygon boundaries for marine bivalve shellfish harvest area classification in Quebec, Canada. These data represent the five classification categories of marine bivalve shellfish harvest areas (Approved; Conditionally Approved; Restricted; Conditionally Restricted; and Prohibited) under the Canadian Shellfish Sanitation Program (CSSP). Data are collected by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) for the purpose of making applicable classification recommendations on the basis of sanitary and water quality survey results. ECCC recommendations are reviewed and adopted by Regional Interdepartmental Shellfish Committees prior to regulatory implementation by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). These geographic data are for illustrative purposes only; they show shellfish harvest area classifications when in Open Status. The classification may be superseded at any time by regulatory orders issued by DFO, which place areas in Closed Status, due to conditions such as sewage overflows or elevated biotoxin levels. For further information about the current status and boundary coordinates for areas under Prohibition Order, please contact your local DFO office. 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 - QualityOversee and Manage Site ConditionsDesignate and Manage Areas of Interest or ConcernScience and Technology BranchWater Science and Technology1.2.1.
