Sea Surface Temperatures Map

This map shows charts of sea surface temperatures for the previous two weeks at 13 shellfish harvesting locations in BC.

The temperature estimates in the charts are composite values calculated based on night-time observations from several satellite instruments. The temperature value represents the readings from a one-kilometer square at the location marked on the chart. Data is downloaded daily.   Click here to see the sea surface temperature map.

  • These charts are useful to assess temperature trends; they do not reflect the maximum daytime temperatures, which will normally be higher than the values shown in the graphs. For more resources, see Shellfish Harvesting & Control.
