We’re on a mission to reduce the carbon footprint of Nova Scotia’s fishing industry! 🐟⚡️

Through the newly established Fisheries and Aquaculture Energy Efficiency Innovation Fund, we’re working with the local fishing industry in #Digby and #SheetHarbour to understand and implement electric vessel conversion!

Happy World Sea Turtle Day! 🐢

Sea turtles have been around for more than 100 million years, surviving the extinction of the dinosaurs. Most grow to be 3 feet long and 300-350 lbs, But some can get up to 6 feet in length and weigh up to 2,000 pounds!

Sadly all species of sea turtles are becoming extinct, and although they can be spotted in the waters of the Digby Area, it is rare. 

On this World Sea Turtle Day, we would like to remember Red Rockette. A world renowned sea turtle who's final resting place was along the Bay of Fundy near Digby.

Red Rockette was a fan favourite and contributed a significant amount to turtle research. 

Red Rockette was first tagged in Nova Scotia in 2012, and then in 2013 won the Great Canadian Turtle Race, nesting the furthest away in Colombia.

Typically researchers can track a turtles movement through their tags, but they never expect to encounter the animals again. 

Red Rockette defied those odds not once, but three times! She was discovered by scientists in Canadian waters off Cape Breton Island in 2014, then again on Bobalito beach in 2016, and then sadly in 2018 near Digby, where she was found deceased.

If you think of how large the Atlantic ocean is, and how many animals are in it, it is near impossible to be able to come into contact with the same animal twice. Especially those that travel thousands of kms each year.

Because of her rare, frequent sightings, she was popular among scientists and those who followed her journeys online. 

Red Rockette also gave the scientific community a previously unseen look into her species' movements and nesting patterns, and for that she is fondly remembered.

Somewhere along Route 340 in Digby County, Nova Scotia is a property I grew up on that encompasses both sides of the road. The sights, sounds, smells will always stay along with the good times shared on this expanse of which this picture is a small piece.
