Queen Charlotte Islands crab fishermen warn offshore project could jeopardize fishery  

A green wind project off the coast of the Queen Charlotte Islands has some critics seeing red.

Vancouver-based Naikun Wind Energy Group is developing a wind project in an area known as the Haida energy field. However, the company has installed an off-shore marine meteorological station in waters used by Dungeness crab fishermen.

Crab fisherman Itch Verne has written to federal Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn to complain.

Verne wrote that the proposed first phase of the Naikun Wind Farm project will cover about 30 per cent of traditional crab fishing grounds in Hecate Straight.

He said that if the remaining four phases are completed, the entire fishery would almost assuredly come to an end.
