Ship-source oil pollution: Compensation & Liability in the Fishing and Marine Industries

This federal Fund, managed by an independent Administrator, compensates victims of oil pollution caused by any ship or boat in Canadian waters. Learn about the types of damages that are covered for the various industry sectors, including tourism; the Fund’s claims process; and how the polluter pays principle applies to ship and boat owners. Learn also about tools and materials that are available to potential claimants.

|10:30 AM||SEMINAR: MEETING ROOM C
Climate Change and Marine Biodiversity: The Impact to Commercial Fisheries
Marine biodiversity is receiving global attention with concern that we are doing irreparable damage to natural ecosystems that will result in the tremendous loss of marine species. Globally, countries are working towards a new framework under the international Convention on Biological Diversity. This new framework is expected to include qualitative and quantitative targets, most likely for 2030. Such targets will be negotiated through to the fall of 2020. An ambitious marine conservation target will challenge how Canada balances protecting biological diversity and maintaining a robust and prosperous fisheries sector. At the same time climate change is affecting ocean ecosystems and will impede the effectiveness of static area, based conservation measures. Mr. Lansbergen will present on these issues. You don’t want to miss this!
|1:30 PM||SEMINAR: MEETING ROOM C
Marine Training for Fishing and Commercial Vessels
This presentation will give an overview of our Transport Canada approved courses across the Fisheries and commercial sectors. Join us to learn about obtaining the skills and certification you need to further a high paying career in the marine industry and have your questions answered.
Atlantic Canada Marine Industries Hall of Fame
This special recognition was developed by the Navigator Magazine in partnership with Master Promotions Ltd. (producer of Fish Canada Workboat Canada) to pay a lasting tribute to those who have made valuable contributions in any sector of the marine industry. Awards are presented in three categories: Mariner (anyone who works or has worked on the water in any marine industry); Processor (anyone involved in the business of processing, from line workers to company owners); and Builder (recognizing those who have made contributions without having directly participated, i.e. industry advocates, organizers, boat builders, etc…)
Congratulations to this year’s inductees:
- MARINER: Dennis Gaudet (Tignish, P.E.I.)
- PROCESSOR: Rodolphe (Rudy) LeBreton (Neguac, N.B.)
- BUILDER: Laurence Cook (Grand Manan, N.B.)
Full bios and stories of the inductees, alongside previous Hall of Fame winners, will be on display at the event.

SALT-X – Booth 530
When applied to surfaces, SALT-X finds its way into each crack and crevice, deactivating and encapsulating salt crystals, thereby halting the corrosion reaction so that the salt is no longer active and damaging. Additionally, the formula contains a corrosion inhibitor compound to further protect surfaces.
Left to air dry on surfaces, SALT-X forms a protective coating against salt damage.
An excellent example of SALT-X at work is in marine engine cooling system flushes. Once marine engines are powered off, salt remains and builds up in the cooling system.
When SALT-X is used as a flush, it travels through the galleries of the engine, destroying this salt build-up.
Salt-X neutralizes the salt on all types of commercial fishing and aquaculture equipment.
Visit us on line at www.saltx.ca and drop by Booth # 530 for a FREE SAMPLE and see why our customers are our best reference.
