Fisheries and Oceans Canada Species at Risk Distribution (Range)

Fisheries and Oceans Canada Species at Risk Distribution (Range) The Species at Risk (SAR) Program is responsible for carrying out DFO’s mandate under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) to protect, recover and conserve all listed aquatic SAR in Canada. As part of this mandate, this spatial database has been developed to identify areas in which aquatic species listed under SARA may be found. Distribution and range information are identified for species listed as Endangered, Threatened or Special Concern under SARA. Distribution (range) polygons and lines were assembled by regional SARA biologists using the best available information, including COSEWIC status reports, recovery potential assessments, academic literature, and expert opinion. These spatial data support the protection, recovery and conservation of species listed as Endangered, Threatened or Special Concern under SARA. Species distributions are also described and displayed in Recovery Strategies, Action Plans and/or Management Plans. Discrepancies may exist between the distribution data shown in a species’ SARA recovery document and the current spatial data. Please contact DFO for more information on any data discrepancies. 2022-08-11 Fisheries and Oceans Canada info@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologySpecies at riskCanadaMarine mammalsMarine reptilesSciencesProtected speciesFisheries managementSalt water fishFreshwater fishEndangered speciesAquatic animalsMolluscs Detailed metadata with descriptions of data attributesPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/DFO_Species_at_Risk_Distribution/Metadata_DFO_Distribution_EN.pdf Detailed metadata with descriptions of data attributesPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/DFO_Species_at_Risk_Distribution/Metadonnees_MPO_Repartition_FR.pdf Fisheries and Oceans Canada Species at Risk Distribution (Range)FGDB/GDB https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/DFO_Species_at_Risk_Distribution/Distribution_Repartition.zip DFO Aquatic Species at Risk Distribution 2022ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/DFO_SARA_Distribution/MapServer/0 DFO Aquatic Species at Risk Distribution 2022ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/DFO_SARA_Distribution/MapServer/1
