A new petition with nearly 100-thousand signatures, and over 30-thousand comments is calling on the Canadian Minister of the Environment to reject a nuclear waste dump on the shores of Lake Huron.
Research biologist at the DNR Dave Fielder spent years with the vessel. He said he’ll miss the old ship.
“Well I tend to think about the different people who have served on it, visited on it, over the years. Whole careers have been spent on this vessel. It can get pretty rough out there, it’s kinda notorious for creating seasickness, but it’s kinda like our second home.”
The new research vessel, the R.V Tanner, is expected to be constructed by April of 2016.
Fielder says the new ship is named after Dr. Howard Tanner who’s known as the, “Father of the Modern Pacific Salmon Program” .
