Let's Talk Navigation Protection Program – Proposed Aquaculture Site Marking Requirements

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

Marking the site of an aquaculture facility with buoys promotes safety by identifying where the in-water equipment is located so that vessels are able to avoid the area.

The Navigation Protection Program (NPP) wants to establish a national approach to the marking requirements for aquaculture sites to:

  • simplify the application process under the applicable legislation;
  • facilitate the understanding and management of these works;
  • promote safety; and
  • simplify monitoring and improve compliance.

To promote awareness of safety concerns associated with aquaculture sites and develop solutions, Transport Canada is seeking input and comments from Indigenous peoples, industry associations and provincial agencies responsible for aquaculture.
