This RFP is closed.
Oceans North and Net Zero Atlantic are requesting submissions of proposals for a report that develops an economic and emissions profile of Nova Scotia’s lobster fleet, assesses the challenges and opportunities of integrating zero-emission propulsion technologies and fuels into the inshore lobster fishery, analyzes the potential economic benefits of developing a zero-emission lobster fishery, and highlights how regulatory incentives, policy and technology development and funding mechanisms can help fishers decarbonize their fleet.
While the scope of the report is focused on the Nova Scotian lobster fleet, the findings are meant to support other jurisdictions and fisheries which face similar pressures. This work is sponsored by Oceans North.
This RFP was released on March 28, 2022, and closed on April 22, 2022.
