The Bay of Fundy Inshore Fisherman's Association (BFIFA) has appeared in a Canadian court voicing its concerns regarding a tidal energy project in Nova Scotia.
The association believes the potential effects of the project on the local fishing industry and surrounding wildlife has been "vastly underestimated" by the province's Environmental Department.
Two turbines are to be installed as part of Cape Sharp Tidal's project in the Bay of Fundy. Each turbine is 16 metres in diameter, 20 metres in height and weight of 1,000 tonnes. Once installed the pair are expected to power 1,000 homes annually.
BFIFA filed an application for a judicial review on July 22, 2016 regarding the Nova Scotia's government decision in June to greenlight the deployment of the turbines in Minas Passage.
"It's a sad day for Nova Scotia that the fishermen of this province are being forced to spend their hard-earned dollars to fight their own government to defend environmental integrity," said Colin Sproul, Tidal energy spokesman for the Bay of Fundy Inshore Fishermen's Association.
