CMAR is developing exposure models to assist aquaculture operators in choosing infrastructure to withstand extreme weather events and to select sites less likely to be affected by a high wave and current action.
CMAR captures a range of wave and current data from around the province to validate exposure models with funding from the Atlantic Fisheries Fund (AFF).
