Fundy North Fishermen's Association Oceans Protection Plan Project

The Fundy North Fishermen's Association Ocean Protection Plan Project dataset includes historical oil spill data with parameters such as date, location, spill quantity, tanker and station identification and weather conditions (eg. air temperature, wind direction and speed, visibility and standard pressure). The dataset also includes knowledge of historical oil spills obtained from local fishermen during interviews as well as beach cleanup data with parameters including location, partner organizations and items found.

This data is part of a 3-year project titled 'Mapping and ground-truthing fishermen’s knowledge of surface currents in the Bay of Fundy area'. Fundy North hopes that that by studying historic oil spills, mapping fishermen’s knowledge of surface currents and conducting a study of currents in the Bay of Fundy area we will help build the knowledge base of oceanographic and hydrographic data for the area.

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