Petitcodiac River Monitoring Program

Between 2009 and 2015, Seaforth Geosurveys Inc. was contracted by GEMTEC Ltd. for the provision of multibeam echosounder, subbottom profiler, sediment and water sample collection surveys as part of an ongoing and repetitive sediment monitoring program in Shepody Bay, upper Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick.

The monitoring program, conducted on board the Huntsman Marine Science Centre vessel, RV Fundy Spray, provides information on sediment transportation and seabed mapping for the purpose of evaluating environmental impacts following the re-opening of the Petitcodiac River causeway.
