Characterization of important coastal habitats on the north shore of the St.Lawrence maritime Estuary : Portneuf-sur-Mer salt marsh

A project to characterize important coastal habitats on the north shore of the lower St. Lawrence estuary has been funded for a period of 4 years (2018-2022). The purpose of this project is to generate ecological reference data to draw an overall portrait of the state of six coastal marshes, namely the marshes of Pointe des Fortin (https://catalogue.ogsl.ca/dataset/3b8c6d97-6eb8 -4e8d-9869-ccb2b9bab5f3), the bay of Mille-Vaches (https://catalogue.ogsl.ca/dataset/f10f496a-acf4-4274-9c7b-7a005bcf54ed), the bays of Grandes and Petites Bergeronnes (https: //catalogue.ogsl.ca/dataset/ca-cioos_a5125bd3-60e3-4c89-89b6-2d3a8728d10f), Pointe-aux-Outardes (https://catalogue.ogsl.ca/fr/dataset/46d3ba2e-2fd3-4aad -a51a-f8343fbe6a73) and Portneuf-sur-Mer.

This dataset covers the Portneuf-sur-mer marsh sector. In order to improve knowledge of this ecosystem, flora and fauna (ichthyological and benthic) inventories have been carried out and the various abiotic factors characterized.

A parallel project led by the Comité ZIP de la Rive Nord de l'Estuaire has broadened the characterization of the Portneuf-sur-Mer marsh by adding a geomorphological component and drafting an intervention plan. The specific dataset for this marsh can be found on the SLGO dissemination platform (https://catalogue.ogsl.ca/dataset/3d240e81-b6b5-481c-b995-f58370deb7bc).

This project is part of the Coastal Environmental Baseline Program Initiative under the Oceans Protection Plan of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
