Attention trawlers! Do you work between Port Hardy and Prince Rupert? If so, we want to hear from you!
This summer, The Connected Coast Project will begin construction to run a subsea fibre optic cable to bring high-speed internet at 154 landings in rural and remote coastal communities. We want to hear from local trawlers to inform the planning process and ensure that the fibre optic cable avoids important trawl locations. Check out the charts below to see if the path affects any of your harvest areas.
Reach out to Adrienne, our GIS Manager, to chat about any areas that the fibre optic cable might impact. Email: [email protected]
