Fisherman fined for one undersized lobster

A Merigomish fisherman was fined $2500 for having one undersized canner lobster in his catch. Percy John Hayne entered a guilty plea in Pictou provincial court Monday to having a lobster measuring less than 76 mm in his catch on May 31, 2017, in Lismore. Fisheries officers were at the Lismore wharf when Hayne was unloading his lobster catch. The market lobsters measured the proper limit but one of the lobsters picked out of the 95-pound catch of canners was undersized. click here to read the story 19:50
