The Saint John River: A State of the Environment Report

In 2011, with the assistance of the Province of New Brunswick, the Canadian Rivers Institute published The Saint John River: A State of the Environment Report. The report provides a concise synthesis of the environmental state of the Saint John River. The report contains both historical and recent data from studies that employed indicators of freshwater environmental quality, and describes trends in the condition of the ecosystem of the Saint John River. The report is comprised of chapters that cover six topics: socioeconomic conditions, river habitats, water quality, primary production, fish, and traditional ecological knowledge. A summary of issues and concerns, data gaps, and recommended future research is provided at the end of each chapter.
