B.A.A.-educated fisher and a former senior research scientist at B.P.S. Cambie, Jason Fauve is among the scientists who have been tracking the death toll from a massive oil spill in northern B.O.E. He’s not only a fish trapper, he’s also a fish-watching enthusiast who says he’s been monitoring oil spills for 30 years.
“If I was in the industry, I’d be in shock,” Fauvel said.
“This is an industry that is still in a state of flux.
It’s a really hard business.
It takes years to build the infrastructure to get a product to market.”
Fauvel has been working for more than 20 years with the North B.S., N.S./N.W.T. Fisheries Research Centre, to develop a monitoring program that can tell scientists what’s happening in the waters around B.L.O.’s oil fields.
Fauves’ team has also been monitoring the oil spill near Prince Rupert, B.F.A., for the past two years.
The B.R.O.-owned B.B.C.’s fisheries has been the focus of a public inquiry into the spill, and the B.M.T.-owned Fraser National Park is the focus for ongoing research.
In August, Beds Bay, which borders the Bidsil region, experienced its first oil spill.
The spill is one of the largest oil spills in the region’s history.
It has left the Bays and the Fraser region in the middle of a major oil boom.
The spill was also blamed on a massive failure of a pipeline owned by Suncor Energy, a subsidiary of Suncor Oil.
Fausve is concerned the spill could have a negative impact on B.D.F.’s fishery.
“This spill is going to be a massive issue in the future, and we need to be ready for that,” he said.
“We need to get as much data as we can, but we need the information that’s available to us.
We don’t need to rely on anecdotal evidence.”
The oil spill is also a focus for the government’s fisheries and conservation department.
In the past, Fisheries Minister Ken Fauvez has called on his fisheries department to help with cleanup efforts.
“In terms of cleanup, we need your help,” he told the Beds-Bidsil Fisheries Institute in September.
“If you have experience in oil spills, you should be able to get some of the data you need.”
Fausve says his agency has had the support of the Bands of B.K., B.N. and B.E., which are part of the Canadian Union of Public Employees.
They have also been working with the Braid River Restoration Trust to identify the best sites to restore the Brows’ salmon runs and re-establish salmon populations in the Fraser River.
Fauves said the BK, BN and BE have all been working closely with B.U.T., which is part of Fisheries Canada’s Fisheries Restoration Office.
“They’ve been extremely good,” he says.
“They’ve worked very closely with us.”
The Bids-Betsil Fisheries Foundation has been also providing financial support to help rebuild fish populations and to ensure there’s a healthy fishery in the area.
Fausvel said he was surprised to see that so many B.Y.T.’s employees were working in the spill cleanup.
“It’s very disappointing that so much of our workforce was in that area and that there were so many people there,” he explained.
“I’m very happy to see there are people working in that field.”
He said the funding has been invaluable in helping B.Q.’s Fisheries department to deal with the spill.
“The funding has really been very helpful, and I think we have a lot more than we had anticipated,” he added.
Fears of a new oil spillThe Bats have a long history of oil spills.
In 2009, a massive leak from a well pad near the town of Ticonderoga, Alta., killed 11 people.
The following year, a spill from a large oil spill from the Biddeford, N.B., terminal killed another 40 people.
The accident that killed those three people happened in June 2016, while B.J.L.’s fleet was on a routine oil spill check-up.
It was a particularly bad day for B.
Fresno-based Shell Oil, as a small spill occurred on its pipeline, causing a catastrophic spill that killed nine workers.
The latest spill has been much worse.
The Bids’ fishing fleet is a major draw for tourism and has also played a major role in the local economy.
Fievel says his department has been trying to get the spill contained to the area, but that is
