Sydney Harbour Relocation Project
Bruce Hatcher

Last Monday on Mainstreet, we heard about a unique fishery that had just started on Sydney Harbour.

About 24 fishermen are involved in a relocation project.

They're trying to catch as many lobster, crab, eel and whelk as they can, and move them to another part of the harbour.

The idea is to get them out of the way, before the big dredging boat arrives and starts sucking up portions of the harbour bottom next week.

Bruce Hatcher is the chair of marine ecosystem research at Cape Breton University.

He's also in charge of the relocation project.

CBC reporter Holly Conners met his at his office today for an update.
