Community-Based Coastal Resource Inventory (CCRI)

for the island of Newfoundland!

We are looking for individuals or organizations in the Northeast Coast, Trinity Bay/Conception Bay, Southeast Avalon/St. Mary’s Bay, Placenta Bay, and Fortune Bay area who are interested in participating.

The CCRI is an inventory of information regarding marine-based resources including traditional and current fishing areas and species (Groundfish, pelagic, marine mammals, shellfish), aquatic plant species, aquatic invasive species, as well as information regarding culture tourism, recreation areas, and activities, coastal infrastructure, and coastline classification.

This inventory is made from community member participation and is used for marine spatial planning (decision making), human use assessment, conflict avoidance, and resolution, environmental assessment, economic development, response planning (environmental emergencies), search and rescue planning and academic research.
