About Lobster PEI

In Prince Edward Island, lobster fishing isn’t just a job – it’s a way of life. We take great pride in our products, and how we work together to manage a sustainable fishery that produces the best lobster in the world. Lobster PEI, or our formal name “The Lobster Fishers of PEI Marketing Board”, is made up of a group of lobster fishers working together to promote and market PEI lobster.

Do You Know Lobster?

Once inside a trap lobsters can never get out.

False – Lobsters Often Escape

Lobsters will often get out of traps - that is part of the design. Traps are built to allow undersize lobster to exit easily. Plus an escape hatch is made of biodegradable twine in case the trap is lost at sea. Adult lobsters will also escape traps at times; it is just more difficult.
