Congratulations to Seaspan Shipyards (Seaspan) for launching the first of three Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels (OFSV) designed and built under the Government of Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) last Friday. The vessel, named Sir John Franklin, is 63 metre in length, with a beam of 6.16 metres and capable of speeds of up to 12.5 knots. After a period of sea trials and finishing touches, the ship will be used to gain a better understanding of fish stocks and their ocean environment.
