Cooke lends boats for flood relief in New Brunswick

Cooke Aquaculture has diverted boats and marine staff from its Charlotte County fish farming operations to help with flood relief efforts in Grand Bay-Westfield and the City of Saint John in New Brunswick, the company said Friday.

This is in addition to the two boats the local, family-owned company already sent to the Village of Cambridge-Narrows on the Washademoak Lake this week. The motor boats are all 21-25 feet long, equipped with safety equipment and are run by trained Cooke Aquaculture operators accompanied by local first responders, according to the company.

As of Friday there were 330 households registered with the Red Cross for evacuations, totalling about 900 people in New Brunswick, The Globe and Mail reports.
