A framework to assess vulnerability of biological components to ship-source oil spills in the marine environment: Fs70-5/2017-038E-PDF

“A structured, adaptable framework to assess the vulnerability of species groups to ship-source oil spills in the marine environment within the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO’s) mandate has been developed. The framework is needed to identify vulnerable biological components to inform oil spill response plans and contribute towards DFO’s commitment to ensuring sustainable aquatic ecosystems. Vulnerability is assessed using a suite of criteria that are designed to be consistent enough to be applicable in different Canadian aquatic environments"--Abstract, p. v.
