The articulated tugboat Nathan E. Stewart grounded with fuel barge off Athlone Island on B.C.'s north coast in October 2016. Although the barge itself was empty, when the tug ran aground, it spilled more than 110,000 litres of fuel into into Heiltsuk territorial waters, devastating the local clam fishery.
