The New Brunswick Ministry of Natural Resources has announced it will allocate submerged Crown land in the Bay of Fundy for the development of instream tidal power.
The Minister, Donald Arseneault, said in his announcement: “This will allow scientists to do research on topics such as water currents and flows, climatic conditions, natural environment, and marine wildlife behaviour.”
Natural Resources will allow access to sites through a request for proposal process and grant access for 12 months, with an option to renew for another year. Access is for the purposes only of collecting data and doing research by planning and consulting stakeholders.
Research areas can be as large as 25 hectares and researchers must spend at least $50,000 in research activity.
