Currently, Victoria’s most valuable fishery is the Rock Lobster Fishery, which is accessed by both the commercial and recreational fishing sectors.
Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre wanted to provide the public with a tool that would enable them to easily report sightings of cetaceans and sea turtles.
