P.E.I.’s fall 2019 lobster season starts Thursday. For the first time since 2015, no fall carapace increase scheduled

The president of the Prince County Fishermen’s Association (PCFA) is hoping this is the year fall lobster fishermen in the northern part of Lobster Fishing Area (LFA) 25 get caught up with their counterparts in the south of their district.  After a five-millimetre carapace size increase, spread out over three consecutive years, there are no further increases scheduled for the fall season. The stop in the carapace climb is “very important, especially at the north end,” Lee Knox said. “It’s great we’re finally there. Hopefully, this year, we will see an increase in the north end rather than a decrease.”  >click to read< 12:33
