Option periods if exercised will be November 1, 2017 through to October 31, 2018 and November 1, 2018 through to October 31, 2019.

Site Visit

A Mandatory Site Visit will be held on Tuesday, September 13 at 10 am local time at Fisheries and Oceans Canada Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) Base 21 Huron St., Victoria, BC. It is a requirement for all persons wishing to submit a bid on this project, attend this meeting at the site to familiarize themselves fully with the scope of work and the tendering requirements. The Bidder’s representative must sign an attendance list and attend the entire site visit, to have their bid submission considered responsive.

The site is located in the entrance to Victoria Harbor. The property is entirely developed and secured by 24/7 on site security and chain link fencing. Structures include six special purpose buildings, 600 foot wharf and marine infrastructure, helicopter hangar and apron, paved operations areas and three parking lots. Vegetation consists of horticulture and native plants and trees and several large lawns and garden beds including a roof top lawn and garden.

The majority of the Canadian Coast Guard site is built on reclaimed waterfront property highly visible to the general public and Cruise Ship pedestrian traffic. Areas adjacent to the public sidewalk and Admin Building rooftop will be maintained and completed at the beginning of every service visit to maintain the best public perception of care of care of lawns of lawns and gardens.

It is not the intent of the landscape contract to produce and maintain a “show piece”. The intent of the contract is to maintain a safe, healthy and peaceful space that both the client and visitors find appealing and unpretentious.

Microplastics and Shellfish Aquaculture: Presence, Extent, Potential Impacts and Mitigation Measures

Fisheries and Oceans Canada | Published March 1, 2016
cpvs

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

Solicitation # : F5211-150439

Closing Date: March 16, 2016

Closing Time : 2:00 PM (Atlantic Standard Time)

This requirement is for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO).

Title: Microplastics and Shellfish Aquaculture: Presence, Extent, Potential Impacts and Mitigation Measures

OBJECTIVES OF THE REQUIREMENT

1) Determine the concentration of microplastics in clams, oysters, and mussels cultured in coastal BC.

2) Determine the concentration of microplastics in the surrounding environment.

3) Characterize the type of microplastics found and identify potential sources.

4) Evaluate depuration as a potential mechanism to eliminate microplastics.

5) Investigate the impact of microplastics on shellfish health and resilience.

Scientific research will be used to address the objectives above. Data will be collected and analyzed and results written up as articles for submission to peer-reviewed journals.

BACKGROUND

While large plastic debris is a known threat to marine biota, microplastics (<5 mm) have received increased attention in the last six years due to ingestion risk, persistence, and ubiquity (desforges et al., 2013). industrial residential wastewaters are major sources of microplastics containing synthetic clothing fibers, pellets (e.g. resin pellets), particles from facial cleansers (cole 2011). also formed by degradation fragmentation macroplastics (browne 2011; andrady, 2011) originating recreational, commercial, activities including aquaculture fishing industries current shellfish culturing methods involve use anti-predator netting (usually constructed plastic) for intertidal clams while oyster culture utilizes plastic fencing rafts which incorporate an abundance nylon ropes, polystyrene, various other types as floats cages (jamieson 2001; dumbauld 2009).< p>

Microplastics have been found throughout the marine environment in both sediments and water (Hidalgo-Ruz et al., 2012) and within a variety of marine taxa, including commercially-grown bivalves (Van Cauwenberghe & Janssen, 2014). Recent research found microplastics in all samples of seawater collected from sites in coastal BC, ranging from 8 to 9,179 particles/m3, but little is known about the implications for biota (Deforges et al., 2014). Harmful physical impacts on animal health have been observed in lugworms, mussels, and zooplankton (Cole et al., 2013; Bessling et al., 2013). Toxic leachate from the ingested microplastics themselves, and from waterborne pollutants that may adhere to the microplastic particles due to their hydrophobic nature, could also lead to bioaccumulation and detrimental toxic effects (Oehlmann et al., 2009). To date, no study has examined the broad-scale responses of marine bivalves to microplastic ingestion. The work proposed in this RFP will be significantly adding to this new area of research by using highly informative functional genomics to elucidate the effects of microplastics on overall animal health.

As the knowledge about microplastics has increased, so too has public concern about human consumption through seafood; particularly for filter-feeding bivalves that are natural bioaccumulators for water-borne particles and pollutants. Annual dietary exposure of microplastics for European consumers of shellfish has been estimated at up to 11,000 particles per year (Van Cauwenberghe & Janssen, 2014). The shellfish industry in BC would like to be proactive in addressing this concern by conducting research to determine the presence and extent of microplastics in shellfish and the surrounding environment, mitigation strategies, and potential health impacts. The BC Shellfish Growers Association and DFO are collaborating to conduct research examining the objectives detailed above (see 1.4).

The Work is anticipated to be performed from the date of Contract award to December 31, 2017

SciTech Environmental Consulting
cpvs

Fisheries and Oceans Canada has a requirement for “Creating Bottom Patches for Haida Gwaii, Queen Charlotte Strait and Johnstone Strait” services to be carried out in accordance with the Statement of Work. Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Science has been tasked with mapping benthic ecosystems. The benthic ecosystems mapping project entails the development and maintenance of a geo-spatial database to store and analyze marine abiotic and biotic data that vary spatially and temporally. These data will subsequently be used for analyses that predict habitat suitability for Valued Ecosystem Components (species or habitats). Contract Dates The intent is to establish a contract for the period from contract award to December 31, 2015. Objectives The objective of this contract is to create the reference nearshore GIS layer for all of Haida Gwaii as well as all the straits between Vancouver Island and the BC coast mainland (i.e. Queen Charlotte Strait, Johnstone Strait and Strait of Georgia). Essentially, under this contract, the reference GIS layer will be completed for all of BC coastline using the same methodology. Additionally, as more multibeam surveys are being conducted and increasingly in shallower waters where these surveys may be useful for mapping the nearshore, there is a need to assess how the results differ when multibeam data are used and to evaluate how multibeam data can be incorporated into the current frameworks. Security Requirements There are no security requirements as the contractor, and his sub-contractors if applicable, will not have access or handle protected documents and/or confidential information. Required Resources or Types of Roles to be Performed Requirements of Resources Provided: • Expertise in GIS – a minimum of 5 years of working with GIS, specifically ArcGIS 9 or later • Experience assembling data layers into a common reference system (i.e. a common coastline) • Experience working in GIS in the marine environment using CHS chart data • Extensive knowledge of the BC provincial ShoreZone dataset • Familiarity with PMECS and EBSA definitions, as the nearshore classification will ultimately be integrated into these two broader frameworks. • Knowledge of the different data sources used in Gregr et al 2013 • Knowledge of backscatter classification methods • Previous experience building the bottom patches as described in Gregr et al 2013 Contracting Authority Cathi Harris Fisheries and Oceans Canada 301 Bishop Drive Fredericton, NB E3C 2M6 Tel: (506) 452-3639 Fax.
