Marine Harvest Canada Webcam Images Now Available Online
April 9th, 2015 – Campbell River, B.C.
Marine Harvest Canada (MHC) has made several of its remote camera images available to British Columbians with interest in current weather patterns. The live cameras, located in Campbell River, Ocean Falls, and Klemtu, can be viewed at www.marineharvestusedsales.com/webcams/.
“Many of our staff travel by air and sea to get to their workplace,” says Mike Sharko, production manager of MHC’s Klemtu area. “It’s important that our crew have the most accurate weather information before they depart for these remote locations.”
Each webcam is providing time-stamped images that update every five minutes. The cameras are now located at Campbell River’s Discovery Passage, Klemtu’s Finlayson Channel (west shores of Cone Island), and Cousins Inlet at Ocean Falls.
Brandon Swartz, Lead Flight Navigator at Corilair Charters in Campbell River, is happy to have extra weather information to help the company plan flights. “It’s a great resource to have, especially to view the water conditions at potential landing spots. Our pilots use many resources to safely plan flights, and these webcams will provide supplemental information for planning.”
Nav Canada provides numerous weather webcams across Canada to aid navigation. These cameras can be selected and viewed at http://www.metcam.navcanada.ca/hb/index.jsp?lang=e&NoSession=NS_Inconnu&Page=Fore-obswxcam-home&TypeDoc=html&Langue=anglais.
