Geospatial Boundaries of Shellfish Growing Area Classification in Canada

Geospatial Boundaries of Shellfish Growing Area Classification in CanadaGeospatial polygon boundaries for marine bivalve shellfish growing area classification in Canada (British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec) are provided in this dataset. These data represent the five classification categories of marine bivalve shellfish growing areas (Approved; Conditionally Approved; Restricted; Conditionally Restricted; and Prohibited) under the Canadian Shellfish Sanitation Program (CSSP). Data are collected by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) for the purpose of making applicable classification recommendations on the basis of sanitary and water quality survey results. ECCC recommendations are reviewed and adopted by Regional Interdepartmental Shellfish Committees prior to regulatory implementation by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). NOTE: These geographic data are for illustrative purposes only; they show shellfish growing area classifications when in Open Status. The classification may be superseded at any time by regulatory orders issued by DFO, which place areas in Closed Status, due to conditions such as sewage overflows or elevated biotoxin levels. For further information about the current status and boundary coordinates for areas under Prohibition Order, please contact your local DFO office.
