VANCOUVER, Oct. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - The Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation, founded and majority owned by the Old Massett Village Council of Haida Gwaii is engaged in on-going ocean research and environmental studies approximately 200 nautical miles west of Haida Gwaii. This work is lawful, on-going, self-funded and in compliance with the Law of the Sea Convention and Canada's Ocean Act.
The purpose of this salmon-enhancement pilot research project, also called ocean restoration or ocean micronutrient replenishment, is to study conditions of the Haida Ocean, with particular attention to the collapse of ocean plankton blooms that traditionally provide nutrients to salmon and other marine life. The Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation is studying and developing methods that may be useful in restoring the growth of phytoplankton and thereby sustain and enhance the production of all marine life and create a sustainable economy for Old Massett.
- Chief Councillor Ken Rea of the Old Massett Village Council will outline the project and how the village initiated and founded the company to proceed with the project.
- Mr. John Disney, the president of Haida Salmon Research Corporation will be available along with legal counsel James L. Straith whose firm completed a comprehensive international and domestic legal status review and legal position paper prior to the work done at sea.
