This report summarizes results of monitoring for toxic contaminants and trace metals in the Niagara River between 1975 and 1982.
An easy-to-understand, visually-appealing booklet with colour-coded symbols to help you make the best choices for Eating Safe Fish from the Niagara River. The information in the booklet is based on the 2017-2018 Guide to Eating Ontario Fish. The booklet is for educational purposes only and was not endorsed by the government.
Since 1983, the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation, and Parks monitored contaminants in the Niagara River using caged mussels and (more recently) semi-permeable membrane devices. This report summarizes data collected in 2015 which was aimed at identifying sources of contaminants specific to the Niagara River.
The report includes the technical assessment and all public engagement that supported the change of status of the Phytoplankton and Zooplankton Populations BUI in the Niagara River to ‘Not Impaired’ (from ‘Requires Further Assessment’). The Canada-Ontario Agreement Annex 4 Co-leads formally confirmed the ‘Not Impaired’ designation in January 2019.
