This dataset contains the fish health metrics (length, weight, gonad size, etc.) for Shorthead redhorse (Moxostoma macrolepidotum) and Golden redhorse (Moxostoma erythrurum) collected from two site locations (Stag Island, and Lake Huron) within the St. Clair River Area of Concern for 2003. Supplemental Information

Funding for this study was provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Great Lakes Action Plan (GLAP) and in support to St. Clair River Area of Concern. In 1987 under the revised Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, 43 areas of concern (AOC), 12 of which are located in Canada, were identified as having severely impaired beneficial uses and water quality.

Funding for this study was provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Great Lakes Action Plan (GLAP) and in support to St. Clair River Area of Concern. In 1987 under the revised Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, 43 areas of concern (AOC), 12 of which are located in Canada, were identified as having severely impaired beneficial uses and water quality. As funded by the Great Lakes Action Plan, a Remedial Action Plan was formed for each area of concern bringing together experts from government, industry, municipalities and environmental non-government organizations to address these impacts.

Water quality and suspended sediment monitoring and surveillance data collected from the connecting channels of the Great Lakes to determine baseline water quality status, long term trends and spatial distributions, the effectiveness of management actions, determine compliance with sediment quality objectives and identify emerging issues are included in this dataset. The Great Lakes are joined together by river systems known collectively as connecting channels, including the St. Marys River, the St. Clair River (and Lake St. Clair), the Detroit River, the Niagara River, and the St. Lawrence River. Uniquely, the connecting channels originate from the outflow of one or more large, oligotrophic lakes rather than the accumulation of a network of tributaries.

Habitat and ecosystem data used to conduct a baseline survey of coastal habitat in Lake Erie, St. Clair River, Lake St. Clair and Detroit River are included in this dataset. The Lake Erie Survey methodology consists of four general steps; 1) delineating the coastal ecosystem into coastal units based on water flow, ecology, and geology; 2) selecting key habitat types including wetlands, uplands (natural and anthropogenic), tributaries, and inland lakes and ponds, and the measures to assess each habitat type and the entire coastal ecosystem; 3) conducting a spatial analysis and summarizing results; and 4) sharing results.
