Research Project: Water Quality
Water Quality: The foundation for all plants and animals that depend on the Salish Sea – from algae to fish to marine mammals.
The Salish Sea's ecosystem is reliant upon the quality of the water in which all of the life depends. Analysis of the water at set locations can help provide a better understanding of the source, cause, and location of any water quality degradation.
A variety of tools and equipment will be used by Guardians to measure and monitor water quality in the Salish Sea. These are the same tools that local scientists and researchers are using, providing valuable experience with equipment and current research methods.
