Season opens May 3 for P.E.I. lobster fishermen

Friday, May 3 will be the first day of the 2019 spring lobster fishery in Lobster Fishing Areas 24, 26A and 26B. The season was initially scheduled to open on Monday, April 29, but forecasts of windy conditions on four successive conference calls have delayed the opening until Friday. Fishermen will be able to leave port at 6 a.m. Friday to start setting gear. There’s an exception for a section of LFA 26A, from Point Prim to Victoria which traditionally opens one week later than the rest of the district. >click to read<13:32
