Floating fishing lodge grounded on Haida Gwaii

The Canadian Coast Guard and contractors are keeping an eye on a floating luxury fishing lodge that became grounded on a rocky shore of Haida Gwaii.

The barge, owned by HaiCo, came free of its moorings in Alliford Bay, about 15 kilometres southwest of Sandspit,  during a storm Saturday night and ended up on the east side of Lina Island.

Because of the fuel on board and the potential for a spill, the barge is considered an explosion risk and coast guard has established an emergency zone extending 0.2 nautical miles in all seaward directions from the lodge.

The Village of Queen Charlotte says the owners, coast guard, government officials, and spill response crews are working on a plan to stabilize the damaged barge.

But the rising tide could make any plan difficult.
