Debris Being Cleaned Up at Aquaculture Site

Provincial fisheries inspectors visited the site of an aquaculture operation on Long Island, Digby Co., Wednesday, April 22, to investigate reports of scattered debris.

Loose buoys, rope and other fish-pen debris were observed on and near the site. Fisheries inspectors confirmed the operator has begun cleaning up the debris.

“Our inspectors have been to the site and, as the operator proceeds with its cleanup, we will continue to monitor the situation and ensure that it is done in a timely manner,” said Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell.

“We are serious about our commitment to transparency and will continue to update the public on the situation if there are other developments.”
