Title: New Brunswick Dept. of the Environment and Local Government - Aquaculture Approvals Program
Description:
Abstract:
The Program provides a yearly assessment of the benthic sediment conditions directly below marine finfish aquaculture facilities in New Brunswick. The program was implemented in 2002 and will continue for the foreseeable future. The program may change over time as need arises. Waterbody or Watershed Names: Passamaquoddy Bay; West Isles Region To determine the compliance status of each marine finfish aquaculture facility with respect to the environmental quality limits imposed by each facility's Approval to Operate (Water Quality Regulation - New Brunswick Clean Environment Act). Sponsor: Province of New Brunswick. New Brunswick aquaculture site operators, as a legal requirement for regulatory Approval Additional Information OR Comments: This program is a revised version of an earlier program carried out by the New Brunswick Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Aquaculture. Materials and Methods: Sampling is conducted by marine aquaculture site operators or their consultants. All work is required to be carried out in accordance with a detailed Standard Operating Practices document that was designed around the methodology of Wildis et al. (1999). Oxidation-Reduction Potential normalized to the hydrogen electrode (Redox reported in mVNHE). Sulfide concentration (reported by micromolar concentration). Visual assessment by dive team. Video recording of benthic conditions. Sample Site Locations: Sampling is required at each of the active marine finfish aquaculture sites in the province of New Brunswick. The actual number of active sites will vary yearly. Each site is required to establish transects below the net-pen structures in accordance with the Department's Standard Operating Practices?. There is a minimum of two transects per site, with each transect yielding three sample points with multiple subsamples depending on sediment depth. Number of Samples Collected: Variable.
