Monitoring of the Fish Community of the St. Lawrence River at Quebec City
Fisheries and Oceans Canada is providing the Aquarium du Québec with $116,000 to ensure the continuance of their over 55 years of data on fish species in the St. Lawrence Estuary. The inventory provides valuable baseline data that enables researchers to study the impacts that seasonal changes, climate change, invasive species and pollution can have on the species that live in the St. Lawrence Estuary.
The funding will be used to acquire new fishing gear to allow for continued collection of this valuable baseline data. This investment will also help to fund a new database that will eventually see this data available on a public web portal.
