5/11 - Photos by Kent Malo from a recent media day aboard the Federal Kivalina in Montreal Harbor.
The theme of the event was to alleviate fears from the public concerning invasive species arriving in ship ballasts tanks. Each ship whose last port was in fresh water must flush the ballasts tanks with salt water, and the action must be noted on a chart indicating the area at which it was done. Records have to be kept and presented to officials upon arrival at the Seaway at St Lambert or at anchor, and a 96-hour notice has to be given to Canadian authorities prior to arrival. The same tests are to be done at Masena, N.Y. Both countries are working on a setup that will alleviate duplicating work for the ships and Seaway authorities from both nations.
