Nanaimo could soon have a new interactive deep-sea museum attracting tourists.

The idea was revealed at the Economic Development Corporation’s annual general meeting last week.

Terry Knight, co-founder of Inuktun Services who now works with Seamor Marine, presented the idea he developed with his friend Phil Nuytten, owner of Nuytco Research out of North Vancouver, which develops and manufactures submersible craft.
