Cold-water (deep-sea) corals have attracted significant scientific and conservation interest in recent years. About 25 to 30 coral species live in waters off Atlantic Canada, most of them in depths of 150 metres and greater. Several of these species are long-lived, grow to a large size (> 1 m) and can form dense concentrations, while at least one can form reefs. The large, habitat-forming species are generally found along the edge of the continental shelf and in deep channels between fishing banks...

Tools available on this site provide pre-defined dynamic views of DFO which are made up of DFO data combined with data from other government and private organizations. These tools get their data from numerous web map servers, therefore all data seen in the views on this site can also be accessed directly by applications that can connect to web map servers compliant with the Open GIS Consortium (OGC) specifications.

Marine Protected Areas or MPAs are established by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) under the Oceans Act to protect and conserve important fish and marine mammal habitats, endangered marine species, unique features and areas of high biological productivity or biodiversity. Canada has committed to establishing a network of protected areas in our oceans to help meet a range of environmental and cultural conservation goals...

The National Aerial Surveillance Program (NASP) helps meet the Government of Canada’s objective to protect and preserve the environment for future generations. The NASP observes the activities of commercial vessels that transit waters under Canadian jurisdiction. Aerial Surveillance serves to protect the environment from both intentional illegal and accidental pollution. TC owns and operates two Dash 8s and one Dash 7 surveillance aircraft capable of surveying all types of actives on the sea surface, each equipped with a state of the art Maritime Surveillance System (MSS6000). The NASP ultimately strives to protect Canada’s ocean resources and fragile marine ecosystems for the benefit of coastal communities and all Canadians.
