The Riparian Band Quality Index (IQBR) is used to assess the ecological condition of the shoreline environment. It is built from nine components that have been weighted according to their potential to perform ecological functions with respect to the protection of aquatic ecosystems. Data on the quality of the riparian zone come from benthos monitoring stations sampled between 2003 and 2019.**This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

Jasper National Park uses a reference condition approach to monitor benthic macroinvertebrates in the stream and river ecosystems within the park. The taxonomic counts of the benthic macroinvertebrates from test sites are compared to that of the reference sites.

This layer shows the location of the sampled stations classified according to the Eastern Canadian Diatom Index (IDEC). It contains data obtained since 1935 that have been converted to version 3 of the index (Lavoie et al. 2014). Benthic diatoms are single-celled microscopic algae that line the bottom of rivers and lakes. Some species are more sensitive to pollution than others. Therefore, the species composition of benthic diatom communities, through the relative abundance of each species present, provides information about the environmental conditions prevailing in a river.**This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

Benthic invertebrate data is collected and used for two biological measures that assess TINP’s freshwater quality. Data collection from streams in the park occurs yearly in July, and follows the Ontario Benthos Biomonitoring Network protocol. Field procedures involve a kick and sweep method at two riffles and one pool location.

What? Benthic macroinvertebrates are monitored in freshwater streams in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. When? Monitoring frequency occurs annually in the fall of the year before water levels get too seasonally high.

The richness of benthic macro-invertebrate species is used to monitor the overall health of stream ecosystems in Gwaii Haanas. Any shifts in community composition, initially detected as an increase or decrease in species richness, can be the result of nutrient levels, atmospheric pollutants, or a physical disturbance of the habitat. This is the result of species adapted to the new conditions increasing in abundance and species maladapted to the new conditions decreasing in abundance. Streams are sampled in permanent locations on a 3-year rotational panel monitoring design.

This inventory, conducted from September 26th to October 3th, 2019, aimed to describe the community structure of macroalgae and benthic macroinvertebrates of five small estuaries of the Upper North Shore of Quebec, namely Barthélemy Bay and the Colombier, Mistassini, Franquelin and Saint-Nicolas rivers. This inventory is part of a doctoral study on the global changes in the St. Lawrence system, mainly the study of marine benthic communities in response to changes of salinity, to ensure proper management of the environment in the face of future changes. The main objective is to describe the structure and the levels of specific diversities of mediolittoral communities of benthic macroinvertebrates and macroalgae along a salinity gradient. These five small estuaries were selected because of their similar size, hard substrates and easy access.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada requires operators of active marine finfish aquaculture sites in British Columbia to monitor for benthic (seabed) impacts. The benthic monitoring program is designed to limit the location, area, and intensity of impact created by fish farms to the seabed and to support sustainable aquaculture by maintaining healthy ecosystems. In addition to the monitoring and reporting required of licence holders, DFO staff biologists conduct field audits to collect and assess sediment samples and take video of the seafloor. This information is used to determine compliance and learn more about benthic impacts during different times of the production cycle.
