CFV Helen II is a commercial fishing vessel owned by Dan Edwards in Ucluelet. The fishing vessel participated in the first pilot workgroup in 2007. The Helen II has an annual carbon footprint of about 79 tonnes. Edwards has partnered with Ecotrust Canada to carry out a research and development project on a new energy-efficient sustainable fishing boat to “green” the commercial fishing fleet.
