NRC partnered with Canadian diving companies COJO Diving and Titan Maritime to host a specialty ALDFG diver retrieval workshop in Nova Scotia in April 2023. With funding from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, the workshop was conducted at the RelyOn Nutec training facility in Dartmouth. Workshop participants were all commercial divers with some experience retrieving lost fishing and aquaculture gear from marine waters of Atlantic Canada. The workshop covered retrieval techniques, decision processes, and program development. Retrieval of lobster pots and nets and use of remotely operated vehicles (ROCs) for retrieving gear were part of the practical component.
