Seaspan Shipyards has delivered the final ship in a class of three offshore fisheries science vessels (OFSVs) ordered for the Canadian Coast Guard.
Like its sisters, the 63-metre CCGS John Cabot will be equipped for a broad range of scientific research missions with emphasis on monitoring of fish stocks in Canadian waters. It may also be called on to perform search and rescue (SAR) and environmental response missions as required.
The OFSV will be stationed at St. John’s in Newfoundland, joining sister vessel CCGS Capt. Jacques Cartier as the second OFSV to be homeported on Canada’s East Coast.
