BC OAH Action Plan
The BC OAH Action aims to determine the state of knowledge related to ocean acidification and hypoxia in BC’s coastal waters, with long-term goals for addressing knowledge gaps and developing adaptation and mitigation strategies to support the fisheries and aquaculture sectors, traditional harvesters, and other BC seafood interests.
Dungeness Crab Case Study Resources
Dungeness crab is a valuable species throughout the National Marine Sanctuaries of the West Coast from Washington state to throughout California. This communication toolkit is designed for educators and communicators to use to teach others about the impact of ocean acidification on Dungeness crab.
Tsleil-Waututh Nation’s Climate Action Initiatives
Tsleil-Waututh members have observed the effects of climate change in our territory for decades. OA is a concern to TWN, along with other ocean-related effects of climate change. Burrard Inlet is becoming more acidic, and research is underway to determine whether the cause is disproportionately associated with OA or if the reduction in pH is attributed to urban and industrial inputs.
Baynes Sound Data
This project aims to better understand the short- and long-term variability that occurs within these productive waters. With more data, it is hoped that producers will have the information needed to make the best decisions for their harvest. This online resource gives users access to real time ocean monitoring data in Baynes Sound.
