British Columbia, Canada, Langley - British Columbia, Physical Activity, Thanksgiving
Langley, British Columbia, Canada - October 10, 2005. Man pulling a cranberry harvesting boom to gather freshly harvested cranberries at The Fort Wine Co. a fruit winery located in the Fraser Valley in the city of Langley, British Columbia, Canada. Cranberry containment booms are used throughout the cranberry industry. The floatation at the surface of the water and the skirt going to a 6&quot; or 12&quot; depth creates a moving pouch to collect and harvest the cranberries from the bed. Once the beds are flooded these booms are used to corral the cranberries for harvesting.
