New surveillance plane to monitor Vancouver Island fisheries



Fisheries and Oceans Canada will be starting a new aerial operation in 2020 with the use of a new surveillance plane. The plane is set to help spot any illegal fishing activity in the waters off Vancouver Island. The aircraft will operate out of Campbell River, with additional planes operating out of St. John’s and Halifax. In addition to illegal fishing, the planes can also gather information about vessel movement, environmental conditions, pollution levels and species.
