15Aquaculture Facilities

The placement of aquaculture facilities in Canada's navigable waterways has reached high concentration levels in many areas. Cautionary buoys are deployed to mark the aquaculture work, and information buoys are used to mark the perimeters of the leased sites. Mariners are advised to exercise caution and give wide berth to the buoys. Mariners should not attempt to navigate through aquacultures sites unless it is apparent that navigation channels are properly marked.

Navigational Warnings will be published by the regional authorities of the Canadian Coast Guard in the event of changes to the approved positions of existing aquaculture facilities and when new facilities are approved.
