DFO has announced $20 million over the next 4 years in new funding under a new program called: 

Fisheries and Aquaculture Clean Technology Adoption Program

This fund could support any fisheries or aquaculture project where environmental performance/impact is improved including new processes, sustainable practices and market ready clean technologies.

This may include projects that would see Styrofoam flotation being replaced by ecologically beneficial newer roto-molded flotation systems for shellfish rafts, docks, work floats etc among other considerations.
