****UPDATE (JUNE 20, 2022) - FREE WHALE SAFE GEAR AVAILABLE TO TEST FROM PEIFA****
The PEIFA was successful in obtaining another “Whalesafe” gear modification called “in-line links” from Seaside Inc. which are now available for trialing. They are suitable for 3/8” - 7/16” rope.
The “Breakaway release links” from CoastLine Cordage Group are still available as well.
As more options become available we will update on our social media platforms and website. If you pick up these Breakaway links you are still eligible to trial different gear types as they become available.
This gear is available to PEI fishers with a valid lobster license including commercial communal licenses. Prior to receiving your gear PEIFA staff will conduct a brief survey related to your current gear configuration.
Please reach out to the PEIFA at (902) 566-4050 to get your free gear. Anyone in the office can assist, but if you have specific questions please contact either Melanie (ext. 5) or Jennifer (ext. 3).
Free Shipping options available upon request.
