Love our Lobster is an annual marketing campaign taking place throughout the month of May to promote the freshness, quality and value of locally harvested, world famous Prince Edward Island lobsters to Island consumers.
The Province of Prince Edward Island is extending best wishes to all Islanders working in the fishery as the 2013 Spring lobster season begins.
The provincial government is investing $100,000 in a shellfish enhancement program to accelerate growth of the oyster fishery which employs more than 1,500 Islanders.
A new expansion to the new Glasgow Rural Community Fire Company will improve emergency services response to residents in 26 surrounding communities. The Province of Prince Edward Island is supporting the project with a $75,000 investment from the Island Community Fund.
A report commissioned by Prince Edward Island’s seafood industry with the support of the provincial government and the Prince Edward Island Atlantic Shrimp Corporation confirms the economic importance of canner lobster to the economy and advises against further increases to carapace size.
