Placentia Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada contains numerous islands and shoals, and is a busy bay with large marine vessel traffic, fishers and small-craft users. Placentia Bay is second only to the Port of Vancouver in Canada in terms of the annual value of goods shipped. The SmartBay applied ocean observing system, an initiative of the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University, was created to enhance marine safety for the Placentia Bay user community, and to provide… Expand
