Stewards of the Gorge
The Gorge is a popular place for both local and visiting boaters. It is however, not known by all that the Gorge also hosts several local shellfish farms. As an important shellfish growing region it is naturally also a NO DISCHARGE ZONE. The aged sign reminding boaters of this fact was replaced last week by a spiffy new one. This was sponsored by the Cortes Island Shellfish Growers, the Stewards of Gorge Harbour Society and supported by a grant from the Strathcona Regional District
