The Season for Giving

‘Tis the season for giving and this year the Lobster Fishers of PEI Marketing Board were honored to give a Christmas donation to the PEI Council of People with DisabilitiesLobster PEI Board Director Malcolm Ferguson presented Marcia Carroll with a cheque to assist Island families this holiday season.

#DYK there are 30K Islanders living with disabilities, 10K of those being children?

PEICOD offers many programs to support Islanders whether it be through tutoring, employment services, community access programs, parking permits, housing and so much more! They do wonderful work and we applaud them for their efforts.

Do You Know Lobster?

Buoys that mark lobster traps are all of uniform size and colour.

False – Buoys Are Various Colours

Each fisher chooses a unique paint colour combination for the bouys that mark their traps. This way the fishers can easily identify their own traps if other fishers are active in the area. The unique colours also aid in enforcement of the lobster industry.
