STREAM Data Portal

Co-delivered by Living Lakes Canada, World Wildlife Fund-Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, and the University of Guelph, STREAM (Sequencing The Rivers for Environmental Assessment and Monitoring) is contributing to the better understanding of aquatic ecosystem health through the DNA metabarcoding of benthic macroinvertebrate samples collected across Canada. DNA metabarcoding is potentially faster, more accurate and less expensive than morphological taxonomic identification given the greater capacity to analyze samples in bulk. It also has the potential to provide enhanced biodiversity information.

The STREAM Data Portal shows site locations and macroinvertebrate species richness results.
