[ARCHIVED] Cowichan Bay VORR & Navigation Channel Survey

The CVRD, Cowichan Tribes, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Transport Canada, RCMP, Living Rivers, and BC Wildlife Federation are partners in an initiative to protect eelgrass habitat in Cowichan Bay. A Vessel Operation Restriction Regulation (VORR) would designate areas in Cowichan Bay as off-limits to motorized vessels in order to protect eelgrass from harmful boating activities such as prop scarring and anchoring. In addition to the VORR, a clearly defined navigation channel would improve boating safety and access to the Cowichan Bay Boat Launch and marinas in Cowichan Bay Village.
