SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
In Quebec, the covered territory is divided into three maritime sectors: Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Gaspésie and Côte-Nord of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The number of sites sampled varies between sectors and between years for a given sector. The program began in 2006 for the Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Gaspésie sectors and in 2009 for the Côte-Nord sector.

This monitoring program is conducted in close collaboration with Merinov, aquaculture farmers, and managers of marinas and commercial and fishing ports.
