Canada’s Oceans: Planning for a Better Future
This site highlights habitat for important marine species, conservation designations and industrial activity impacting ocean health. By exploring regions, species, challenges and solutions, Canada’s interactive, customizable oceans map shows how human uses overlap with areas that marine life depend upon. It gathers information about shipping routes and fisheries on all three oceans in one place. This information can all be layered with data on ecologically and biologically important areas, protected areas such as national parks and proposed marine national wildlife areas.
