Maintenance Dredging at Bonaventure Fishing Harbour

The Small Craft Harbours Branch of Fisheries and Oceans Canada proposes to undertake maintenance dredging at Bonaventure fishing harbour, located in Gaspésie, in the Québec province.


The maintenance dredging aims to provide safe and accessible facilities for local fishermen.  The scope of this project includes maintenance dredging of the channel and the basin. The maximum volume of dredged material is about 4 000m3.  The proposed dredging will be carried out by means of a barge with opening bottom, a hydraulic shovel or a crane equipped with a half shell bucket. Dredged sediments will be inland managed.
