Fish health metrics for Niagara River AOC Brown bullhead and Yellow perch

Fish health metrics for Niagara River AOC Brown bullhead and Yellow perch This dataset contains the fish health metrics (length, weight, gonad size, etc.) for Brown bullhead (Ameiurus nebulosus) and Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens) collected from three site locations (Queenston, Point Abino, and Black Creek) within the Niagara River Area of Concern for 2004 and 2008. Supplemental Information Funding for this study was provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Great Lakes Action Plan (GLAP) and in support to Niagara River Area of Concern. In 1987 under the revised Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, 43 areas of concern (AOC), 12 of which are located in Canada, were identified as having severely impaired beneficial uses and water quality. As funded by the Great Lakes Action Plan, a Remedial Action Plan was formed for each area of concern bringing together experts from government, industry, municipalities and environmental non-government organizations to address these impacts. Today over 900 restoration projects have been successfully completed by Environment and Climate Change Canada and partners including Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrades, fish and wildlife habitat restoration, and water quality improvements For more information on the Niagara River Area of Concern visit: https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-climate-change/services/great-lakes-protection/areas-concern/niagara-river.html 2021-07-29 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-overt@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentNiagara RiverQueenstonPoint AbinoBlack CreekGreat Lakes Action Plan (GLAP)Area of ConcernFish health metricsYellow Perch (Perca flavescens)Brown bullhead (Ameriurus nebulosus)Environment GLAP NR FishHeathMetrics BB YP EN FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/sites/areainterest/niagara-river-area-of-concern/fish-health-metrics-for-niagara-river-aoc-brown-bullhead-and-yellow-perch/GLAP_NR_FishHeathMetrics_BB_YP_EN_FR.csv View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/sites/areainterest/niagara-river-area-of-concern/fish-health-metrics-for-niagara-river-aoc-brown-bullhead-and-yellow-perch/ View ECCC Data Mart (French)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/sites/areainterest/niagara-river-area-of-concern/fish-health-metrics-for-niagara-river-aoc-brown-bullhead-and-yellow-perch/?lang=fr
