Residents of the Cape Shore will have access to kelp that will be dredged from St. Bride’s Harbour.
The local harbour is clogged with massive amounts of kelp and a tender has been called to remove it in the coming weeks.
Regional Director with Small Craft Harbours, Bill Goulding says residents will have access to the kelp for use in their gardens and fields.
He says kelp is a natural organic fertilizer and it will be available in St. Bride’s for those who want to use it.
DFO is weighing its options on a more permanent solution to the kelp problem, including looking at the possibility of removal of part of the eastern breakwater and wharf which residents say is preventing the kelp from flushing out of the harbour natually.
