I forgot to mention that we will take questions at the end of each session if time permits. You may drop your questions in this chat box for each presenter. Thanks!

Was there any discussion of how to staff winter surveys? That's when we typically process samples, repair gear, build new gear, etc.
Ben Hale
38:04
Are the links to the material and recordings on the GLASS website?
Mark Burrows
39:33
I will be posting the recordings and documents in the next few days as they are made ready to go -
Derek Niles (Orange Force Marine)
56:14
Have there been any consideration to contracting crew members with qualifications rather than hiring, or is that cost prohibitive? Many Crew Services companies exist and many mariners like the diversity and breadth of experiences that comes with contract type work.
Scott Koproski - USFWS
56:48
Kurt's point about engine room endorsements is valid and one FWS is currently navigating on the Baird. When USGC added CRF requirements for a QMED endorsement on tug boats, we have struggled to find QMED candidates.
eric hecox
57:24
what kind of seatime can an MMR accrue? Oiler, time towards dde exams?
WALTER STEWART
58:01
yes. to both
Scott Koproski - USFWS
01:05:55
Another challenge we have associated with staffing our research vessel are expectations of those in the maritime industry. Professional sailors generally do not re-locate for a job. They report to the ship/port, do the work, and return home.
Maxwell Morgan
01:08:33
American Fisheries Society Job board is a great place to post an add too.
WALTER STEWART
01:34:22
how Is maritime licensing evolving (or how do you think it will evolve) to accommodate remote operators?
Rebecca
01:45:58
As someone who is working on Inland Seas as the mate after working on freighters and making a lot more money, I think the part of the discussion here that addresses passion for the mission, culture, those are the real draws for crew members. Itโ€™s certainly something to be addressed to try and get better pay for crew members, but keeping the focus on what kind of people weโ€™re looking for and whether they fit into the organizational culture is really important.
K Newman
01:47:18
I very much agree Rebecca.
Rebecca
02:02:10
school is getting more and more expensive as well as everything we have to maintain for our licenses. There are a lot of grants and scholarships out there too, which often go unapplied for.
Warren Currie (DFO)
02:10:44
DFO will be doing multiple lower trophic surveys as well.
Warren Currie (DFO)
02:11:25
There it is ๐Ÿ‘
Warren Currie (DFO)
02:14:51
I am the CSMI DFO Core Team representative if anyone wants more information.
Chris Davis
02:31:14
Derek Niles, what do you envision for how the bathymetric data is going to be managed? Specifically, who will "clean" it/validate it, who will house it, how will it be accessed and shared? Is this going to be publicly available to anyone who wants it?
Derek Niles (Orange Force Marine)
02:35:36
@Chris Davis - data collected from our Great Lakes CSB program is bound for the public domain. GLOS will be validating and cleaning the data and it will then be uploaded to both Seagull (for building their bathymetric layer) and onwards to IHO / NOAA Data Center for further public download and use (along with the metadata). 100% public access but the participating organizations who collect the data, also have access to the source data collected by their vessels. Please feel free to reach out to me directly for further info! dniles@orangeforcemarine.com

Do know if there are still restrictions for going in to CA waters or Ports for 2022?
Warren Currie (DFO)
02:40:30
Sam, if the route is "loop navigation" (no intention to enter a CA port) then there are no restrictions at all. If you intend to enter at a port, you need to notify Canadian Border Agency as usual.
Justin Chaffin
02:44:12
Does/Will Lakebed 2030 use Navionics Sonar Chart or Genesis C-Map Social Map? From recreational boaters and charter boats?
Justin Chaffin
02:45:11
I've wondered how social sea maps work when there is a seasonal change in water levels in the Lakes.
sam miller
02:45:29
Thanks Warren, the is good to know. We are tasked (as I know now) to work the North Channel and Georgian Bay again and making port calls will be good. So contacting CBS is something I am familiar with.
Jon Hortness (USGS)
02:46:14
USGS Science Gaps report: https://pubs.er.usgs.gov/publication/ofr20211096
Derek Niles (Orange Force Marine)
02:48:55
@ Justin Chaffin - Navionics and C-Map are engaged on the Seabed 2030 initiative and are exploring means of providing their data to the IHO / NOAA Data Center. The exact details, I don't know. Regarding the water level changes - we measure from the waterline of the vessel to the seabed, so the collection aspects are not affected by variable water levels. As part of post-processing of the collected CSB data, we create a "timestamp" that allows us to correct the data to true depths based on the water levels.
Warren Currie (DFO)
02:50:35
Jerry, will there be any coordination of the GLCOE with CCG environmental response group?
Jerry Popiel USCG D9
02:57:58
Yes, absolutely! I am also the US Co-Chair of the Canada-US Joint Response Team that works with the Canadian CG for coordinated spill response on the Lakes. We see close cooperation as part of the GL COE's plans!
Jerry Popiel USCG D9
02:58:45
Amanda Greer and Martin Blouin from the CCG are on speed dial for us! :)
Jerry Popiel USCG D9
02:59:36
I have to step away for a bit but will be back ASAP.

Joe
03:19:10
So is that mouthful a replacement for or new version of OMNR?
Daryl McGoldrick (ECCC)
03:21:42
Wait till they merge with MOECP... MNDMNRFOECP
tcherry
04:35:40
What are the ops parameters for the saildrone, wind and waves?
Warren Currie (DFO)
04:37:21
they sailed one into a hurricane this past year. https://www.saildrone.com/press-release/ocean-drone-captures-video-inside-category-4-hurricane
tcherry
04:38:45
interesting, what about for the science gathering part of Hydro?
Warren Currie (DFO)
04:45:13
what transducer frequencies were collected?
Susan Wells
04:47:38
I believe the 2 USFWS vessels were going to be done this year but need to follow up
Warren Currie (DFO)
04:49:04
question for everyone, are there any plans to eventually have an electric drive hydroacoustics vessel?
Joe
04:51:43
Pete - How tall is that sail above the water?
Peter Esselman
04:53:11
Joe, it's 20 ft.
Joe
04:53:31
Tks.
tcherry
05:04:07
What is your opinion as a licensed Capt on the liability side of launching this from your vessel if something goes sideway?
David Bowman
05:04:15
@Travis White- How are encounters with other vessels or possible hazards dealt with?
Mark Burrows
05:21:27
To Joe - did any of the changes affect the stability work-up of the Kiyi?
elam
05:23:58
Are they CATengines and what HP?
Christina Catanese (she/her)
05:36:43
Here are our emails again since I didn't have that slide up very long: catanesc@gvsu.edu;hecoxe@gvsu.edu
Deborah Lee
05:51:11
You still owe me a ride!
Beau Braymer
05:54:41
Anytime!
dereager
06:05:34
Congrats on the new captainship Max!
Justin Chaffin
06:16:17
How are they fund raising for the new boat?
Scott Koproski
06:20:39
What is the anticipated crew profile for the new boat? And how does that compare to the Neeskay?
Derek Niles (Orange Force Marine)
06:25:31
Most Furuno transducers are from Airmar. May have alternative P/N
Brandon Bastar
06:29:17
Derek, We have checked with Airmar and we can get an alternative but it's housing is plastic vs. the Stainless steel we would like to go with. We would rather do it once and do it righ.
Scott Koproski
06:32:20
I know many of us are looking for engine room positions, but FWS has a current announcement on USAJOBS. If you know of anyone who may be interested, please direct them to this link. Thank you... https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/637402500
Maxwell Morgan
06:32:52
Just looking over some documents propulsion as of now states diesel hybrid and the US tonnage states <200
Warren Currie (DFO)
06:33:55
Just FYI there are plans to replace a DFO Science / CCG vessel with one that is a light icebreaker.

Also, the Griffon and the Samuel Risley collected winter limnology samples for the #WinterGrab this past week.
Mark Burrows
06:36:00
Fantastic! glad to hear that!
Warren Currie (DFO)
06:37:08
Maybe for next meeting we can invite the CCG fleet renewal staff to present on the newest plans.
Tim Johnson
06:40:01
Thanks to Mark, Tom and the SC for organising a great program.
