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?

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.
