Shellfish Water Classification Program – Marine Water Quality Data in Quebec

You're currently viewing an old version of this dataset. Some resources may no longer exist or the dataset may not display correctly. To see the current version, click here.

This dataset provides marine bacteriological water quality data for bivalve shellfish growing areas in Canada (British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec). Shellfish growing 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 growing waters. ECCC recommendations are reviewed and adopted by Regional Interdepartmental Shellfish Committees prior to regulatory implementation by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO).
