The LFA 25 post-season wide scale gear retrieval project begins today, Thursday, October 13th until Tuesday, October 18th, 2022. The PEIFA/PCFA have approximately 42 fishers from 9 wharves across the Island assisting with the at-sea retrievals this year!
This initiative is an important collaboration between the Prince Edward Island Fishermen’s Association, Prince County Fishermen’s Association and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Conservation & Protection. We would like to thank all the volunteers including the harbour representatives and harbour authorities for their participation and assistance with the project. Your contributions through these retrieval activities are helping to keep our coastal environments clean and safe for navigation.
