The Aqua Leader put into Halifax this afternoon and tied up at the Tall Ships Quay. She was met shortly after by an Irving Oil truck, and refueling began.
Built in Blenheim, Ontario in 1989, the boat is the former Jean-Jordannie and is presently owned by The True North Salmon Co of St.Andrews, NB, where she is registered.
Although built on the lines of a fishing vessel, she is fitted for farmed salmon operations. The large enclosed house on the after deck and other gear, indicates that she doesn't do fishing in the conventional sense!
She was also flying a Newfoundland flag on her mast. Many of these fish farm vessels work back and forth between Newfoundland and the Bay of Fundy.
