Speaker Luncheon XIX - Victoria Harbour Marine Use and Land-Water Interfaces

This was the third time HBF engaged students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), MassachusettsUSA, for research on the harbour.  This year, the study focused on the leisure and recreational marine uses and related land-water interfaces in Victoria Harbour.

The goal of the study was to develop a set of recommendations to makeVictoria Harbour into a “living” harbour – one that is actively used for a diversity of land- and water-related activities.  To achieve this goal, the study was divided into two phases. In the first phase, the students created a database with the locations and descriptions of the existing marine infrastructure in Victoria Harbour. In the second phase, they developed a forecast of the changes in marine activities and infrastructure requirements over the next 15 years and recommendations to improve the marine infrastructure in the harbour.
