Parasite community in Athabasca River trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus)

Parasite community in Athabasca River trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus) The study examines the parasite communities in Athabasca River Trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus) at five sites along the main stem of the Athabasca River to explore whether any observed changes in parasite abundance or community structure might correlate with small-scale variations in water chemistry, sediment characteristics, water and sediment pollution, larger-scale landscape use patterns, distance among sites, and upstream-downstream gradients. 2021-07-29 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentAthabasca River trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus)Fishparasite communitiesAthabasca RiverParasitesEnvironmentBiota OSM_AthabascaRiverTrout-Perch_ParasiteCommunities EN_FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/parasite-community-in-athabasca-river-trout-perch-percopsis-omiscomaycus/OSM_AthabascaRiverTrout-Perch_ParasiteCommunities_EN_FR.csv Scientific publication - Parasite community similarity in Athabasca River trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus) varies withlocal-scale land use and sediment hydrocarbons, but not distance or linear gradientsHTML https://doi.org/10.1007/s00436-016-5151-x View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/parasite-community-in-athabasca-river-trout-perch-percopsis-omiscomaycus/ View ECCC Data Mart (French)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/parasite-community-in-athabasca-river-trout-perch-percopsis-omiscomaycus/?lang=fr
