Abstract:
This collection comprises eight products, seven of which correspond to the same number of areas of the River and the Gulf of St Lawrence: Chaleur Bay, the Lower North Shore, the lower estuary, the middle estuary, the Gasp?, the Magdalen Islands and the Middle North Shore. The eighth product covers the Saguenay River. The information included in these three products covers six themes, four of them biotic in nature (vegetation, invertebrates, fish, marine mammals) and two abiotic (habitat and zoning and uses). Each of these themes is divided into sub-themes (e.g. red algae, rainbow smelt), which are further subdivided into information classes (distribution, concentration, reproduction, oceanographic characteristics, etc.).The Habitat Management Division (HMD) of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) has developed a management tool to take advantage of knowledge of the spatio-temporal distribution of fishery resources and of the characterization of their habitats to achieve integrated management of Quebec's coastal environment. To that end, HMD has developed a geographic information system (GIS), also called FHAMIS, which is intended to manage, analyse and map data on fish habitat for purposes of: 1) habitat impact evaluation under the Fisheries Act, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act and the Fish Habitat Policy; 2) restoration and enhancement of fish habitat; 3) implementation of initiatives under the new Oceans Act (marine protected areas, integrated coastal area management); 4) environmental emergency response (advice on the protection of habitat and resources); 5) provision of information on habitat to DFO clients (managers, scientists, NGOs, coastal communities, departments, consultants).
