This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for finfish (brook and rainbow trout) and shellfish (mussels and soft shell clams) for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program. The sampling includes a total of nine rivers that are tested across PEI, with three of the rivers being sampled each year.
Finfish are collected from the river by electrofishing or rod and reel. Shellfish are collected from the same river systems manually, as close to the finfish sampling as possible. The purpose of the sampling is to determine if pesticide residues accumulate in the fish/shellfish.
Groundwater level search results include data from 14 groundwater level observation wells across PEI; mapped locations of observation wells; graphs; and downloadable raw data. The groundwater level data provides long-term trend information, both historical and real-time, on groundwater levels.
Prince Edward Island participates in the National Forestry Database by contributing yearly summary data, including: forest inventory, wood supply, forest fires, forest insects, forest products, silviculture, revenues and pest control product use. The National Forestry Database is Canada's Compendium of Forestry Statistics, serving as our national source of credible, accurate, and reliable forestry statistics.
The principal role of the National Forestry Database is to collect and compile national forest data and forest management statistics. The National Forest Database serves as Canada’s credible, accurate, and reliable source of national information on forest management and its impact on the forest resource.
Mandated through the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers, a partnership composed of fourteen federal, provincial and territorial ministers, the Canadian Forest Service at Natural Resources Canada developed and maintains the database and has responsibility for disseminating national forestry statistics. With the guiding support of members, the Canadian Forest Service collects data from provincial or territorial resource management organizations. Federal land data are provided by the responsible federal departments and compiled by the CFS.
