Baffinland listens to Inuit on marine wildlife monitoring

Shipping Story

Baffinland takes marine wildlife monitoring seriously because we understand how important healthy aquatic ecosystems are to Inuit. Based on feedback we regularly receive from residents in nearby communities, Baffinland continues to improve its shipping operations to minimize the potential impacts on local marine wildlife.

  • We have established speed limits for vessels: To reduce the possibility of collisions with wildlife, we have capped vessel speeds at 9 knots for all Baffinland-contracted vessels. Baffinland receives alerts when any vessel in the area travels over 9 knots and if the vessel is associated to our Mary River operations, we follow up to enforce this speed limit. We remain the only operation in the area to set this voluntary speed restriction, thereby exceeding Canadian regulations.
  • We strictly test ballast water: We go above and beyond Transport Canada regulations to guard against the introduction of aquatic invasive species by testing ballast water salinity of incoming foreign vessels prior to release in Milne Port. We also request that all vessels with onboard treatment systems both treat ballast water and perform a ballast water exchange prior to any release in Milne Port.
  • We continue to explore and implement new approaches for further reducing acoustic disturbances on wildlife: Baffinland does not start shipping ore until confirming there is no more landfast ice along the entire shipping route extending from Baffin Bay to Milne Port. This reduces the overall need for icebreaker escort. Baffinland also restricts the number of vessel transits based on observed ice conditions, with fewer transits allowed during heavier ice conditions. Ore carriers are also instructed to wait at least 40 km to the east of the Nunavut Settlement Area boundary until given approval by the Baffinland Port Captain to travel towards Milne Port. Also, before the shipping season begins, we meet with residents in Pond Inlet to provide a schedule of our plans and wait to start shipping until we receive confirmation from the Mittimatalik Hunters and Trappers Organization that the Pond Inlet floe edge has been closed to hunters.

We are committed to continuously improving our shipping operations and this begins and ends with input from Inuit, who provide valuable insights on potential impacts to marine wildlife. From there, we collaboratively develop plans to minimize those impacts and diligently monitor our operations to see how these plans are working in the real world. We analyze results to see if our new plans are achieving our intended outcomes and we will consider and subsequently implement changes needed to improve our operations.

In recent years, we have altered our shipping lane extending from Baffin Bay to Milne Port and limited the number of vessels that can wait at existing anchorage locations to avoid drifting in Eclipse Sound as the result of consultations with community members. 

Baffinland continues to carefully monitor the movement and health of wildlife to understand how best to avoid disturbing habitats. We conduct aerial and land-based surveys and employ onboard Inuit wildlife monitors to gather important information. We are pleased to report that the relative abundance of narwhal has remained constant from 2014 through to 2019. While we have observed that narwhal temporarily move away from vessels, they do return back into the ship track line after the vessel has passed. Studies completed by Baffinland contribute towards expanding knowledge on narwhal biology, and importantly continue to deepen our understanding of the effects, duration and distance of displacement of narwhal in relation to our shipping operations.

Baffinland does not ship during periods of seal pupping. We can also report that there are no project-related effects to water quality or seabed health. As well, in 2019 no fish mortality events were reported, and none thus far in 2020. We continue to sample fish in Milne Port as part of our annual marine environment monitoring programs.

Baffinland is committed to safe and environmentally responsible mining. We make all of our reports available on our website so the public knows all that we are doing to minimize the impacts of our shipping operations.
