Reassessment of the ecologically and biologically significant areas (EBSAs) in the Pacific Northern Shelf bioregion .: Fs70-6/2018-040E-PDF

"DFO has developed guidance for the identification of Ecologically and Biologically Significant Areas (EBSAs), and has endorsed the scientific criteria used by the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) for identifying EBSAs. EBSAs in the Pacific Northern Shelf Bioregion (NSB) were identified in 2006 and peer reviewed in 2012. DFO Oceans Sector of the Ecosystems Management Branch has requested DFO Science to review previously identified EBSAs in the NSB using available biological data. The information arising from this Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat Regional Peer Review can be used to support the refinement of existing EBSA boundaries, and help to inform MPA network planning in the NSB, including the Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area Plan"--Context, p. [1].
