A Cooke Aquaculture barge carrying fish feed sank earlier this week off Brier Island in Digby County.
The barge, described as \"small\" was found submerged early Wednesday morning near Cooke\'s fish farm, company spokeswoman Nell Halse said Saturday afternoon.
That day, she said divers plugged the barge\'s outlets to prevent liquids from leaking into the water.
\"It would have been minimal, whatever was released,\" Halse said.
No fish or feed are believed to have been lost, she said. No one was on board or injured in the process.
\"We did report it right away,\" Halse said, referring to the federal Department of Transportation, Coast Guard, as well as the provincial departments for fisheries and the environment.
