ONLINE VOTE FOR LFA 26A LOBSTER OPENING DATE
The spring lobster opening was discussed at the season review meeting of the PEIFA LFA 26A Lobster Advisory Committee. Concerns were raised around additional handling of moulting and spawning lobster when fishing into July resulting in possible negative implications on the stock like increased mortality and egg loss. Similar discussions were being held in Nova Scotia and yielded similar concerns.
