Licensed under Open Government License - British Columbia

Distribution of kelp beds in coastal British Columbia. Attribute information includes relative abundance, species, biomass and density of the beds. British Columbia has been collecting coastal resource data in a systematic and synoptic manner since 1979. Resource information is collected using peer-reviewed provincial Resource Information Standards Committee which include standards for data management and analysis
