SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
Fisheries and Oceans Canada is giving the public access to the protocols for collecting the biological data that apply to the commercial catches of marine species in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence. For each species, the sampling protocols are illustrated in the form of shortened data sheets on which the species code, the type of form, the main procedure guidelines, the sampling stratification criteria as well as the biological material collection techniques for detailed laboratory examination are presented.
