SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
The Species Identification Guide is an application providing access to information about various species inhabiting the St. Lawrence ecosystem. Species can be searched by their French, English or scientific name (latin). Details about their characteristics along with pictures and distribution maps are available.
As a first step, substantial efforts have been made by Fisheries and Oceans Canada in order to validate and make marine fish information available. However, the application has been developed by SLGO with the objective of eventually including freshwater species, invertebrates, marine mammals, sea birds, etc.
An administration interface has also been developed to allow data uploading by experts adding new data to the identification guide.
