N.S. government spends $350,000 in funding on first of its kind simulator for NSCC

The Nova Scotia government is funding a new fisheries simulator for the NSCC Shelburne Campus which will allow students to practise operating fishing vessels while on land. The simulator features navigation systems for both fishing and aquaculture, making it the first of its kind in Canada. The grant comes from the province’s Department of Advanced Education, which is spending $350,000 on the project. The province says they hope the project will help bring more participation to operations and careers involving fishing vessels, as well as help the fishing sector by bringing in a more highly skilled and experienced workforce. more, >>CLICK TO READ<< 09:23
