***FREE*** 2017 PEI Lobster Quality and Handling Workshops:

 The Prince Edward Island Fishermen’s Association’s lobster biologist, Melanie Giffin, will be offering 4 FREE lobster quality and handling workshops in April for LFAs 24 and 26A and 1 in July for LFA 25.

 These workshops are FREE and open to ANYONE who handles lobster: harvesters, deckhands, buyers, plant employees, etc.

If you have your deckhands hired already this is a prime opportunity to add to their knowledge base prior to starting work on your vessel.

Topics that will be discussed include lobster biology and anatomy, proper handling techniques to reduce stress and therefore mortality, and how to determine the quality of your lobster.
