This dataset contains temperature data taken from 11 streams or rivers in Forillon National Park since 2008. Temperature data are collected hourly by a HOBO probe installed on the watercourse’s bottom in June and removed in September or October. For each watercourse studied, the temperature probe is installed at the benthic invertebrate community sampling site (CABIN) close to the site at which the electrofishing is carried out. Temperature data are particularly useful for assessing the quality of brook trout aquatic ecosystems in Forillon National Park.

This dataset covers the monitoring of benthic invertebrate communities in 11 streams or rivers in Forillon National Park since 2007. The sampling methods and techniques used for this monitoring are based on those of the Canadian Aquatic Biomonitoring Network (CABIN) established by Environment Canada. This follow-up is usually done in early fall. The collection site is located near the brook trout community and water temperature monitoring site for each of the watercourses studied.

Water temperature is considered a key ecosystem driver in freshwater ponds and streams of PEI National Park. American eel and Eastern Brook trout have been chosen for evaluating pond and stream temperature conditions as they are a common residents in most Atlantic Canada water bodies. Eastern brook trout are intolerant of warm water conditions. Stream temperature and brook trout growth are important factors that can directly influence survival, growth and distribution.

This dataset concerns monitoring of the Penouille eelgrass beds. Because of the ecological importance not only of eelgrass beds, but also of the animal communities they support, eelgrass beds are often used as indicators of coastal ecosystem health. Two sets of data deal more specifically with animal species, mainly fish, which use this habitat for different stages of their life cycle. They contain data related to each of the three sites sampled in the spring and fall using fyke nets since 2013.

Stream temperature increases due to climate change, land clearing, beaver activity, etc... can be stressful for resident fishes and other aquatic species. Bruce Peninsula National Park monitors three creeks for thermal stress; particular emphasis is on Brook Trout habitat suitability.

This dataset covers the status of the commercial lobster (Homarus americanus) fishery. Commercial lobster fishing activities within the administrative boundaries of Forillon National Park inevitably have impacts on this invertebrate population. Through annual stock status monitoring, it is possible to study the impacts of the fishery and changes in the lobster population in the coastal waters of the park. Data are gathered by means of at-sea sampling, whereby a monitoring team boards lobster vessels to collect data at sea during three periods of the fishing season.

This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for finfish (brook and rainbow trout) and shellfish (mussels and soft shell clams) for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program. The sampling includes a total of nine rivers that are tested across PEI, with three of the rivers being sampled each year. Finfish are collected from the river by electrofishing or rod and reel. Shellfish are collected from the same river systems manually, as close to the finfish sampling as possible.

Brook trout are top predators in aquatic ecosystems at Kejimkujik that integrate the effects of stressors throughout the aquatic trophic structure. They are sensitive to a variety of stressors, including acidification, changes in water quality, climate change, fishing pressure, exotic species introductions, trophic structure alterations, land use change, and watershed fragmentation. The monitoring program tracks Brook trout population status, as assessed by relative abundance and trout condition at two watersheds in Kejimkujik. Volunteer anglers record morphometric and catch per unit effort data during the months of April, May and June for 3 years in a row every 5 years.

The effects of climate warming, eutrophication, air pollutant inputs and forestry activity that occurred before La Mauricie National Park was created influenced and continue to influence today water quality in the park. These stress factors threaten the natural evolution of aquatic ecosystems. On several small lakes, the quality of the habitat has not ensured the maintenance of the eastern brook trout population and has decreased the beaver population. In order to monitor the aquatic ecosystems, sampling of a number of predetermined lakes is being carried out and water quality is being measured by evaluating parameters related to acidification, eutrophication, general water quality, and oxygen and temperature conditions.

Stream thermal regime has important consequences for aquatic organisms, and is sensitive to climate and land use. The Park is monitoring thermal regimes at 10 sites annually from spring to fall using temperature loggers. The water temperature is recorded hourly and these data used to assess the suitability of the thermal environment of streams for Brook Trout.
