The spring lobster season is highly anticipated by fishers and diners alike and this year’s setting day was scheduled for April 29 but was delayed by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans due to the inclement weather.

Photographer Brian McInnis shared some of last year’s photos with us. He was onsite in North Rustico and Covehead Harbour in 2018 for all the hustle and bustle of that first day.

PEI has about 1200 lobster fishers who fish out of PEI’s 45 ports. The spring season runs for two months until the end of June, and after a short break, the late summer/fall season begins in August.
Salty wishes all our fishers a safe and plentiful season.
