ALBERTON – Lobster will dominate the agenda when the Western Gulf Fishermen’s Association holds its annual meeting, Tuesday, Dec. 17.
WGFA president, Craig Avery, said the Lobster Fishing Area (LFA) 24 Lobster Advisory Committee will be seeking members’ opinions on adjusting the dates of the spring lobster fishery so that it always opens on the last Monday in April and ends on the last Saturday in June, rather than the customary April 30 to June 30 season.
There will also be discussion on shifting the minimum market size to reflect the American market size.
There will also be presentations from both the Maritime Lobster Panel and the P.E.I. commissioned Younker report on the lobster industry.
The proposed cent-a-pound lobster levy for marketing will also be discussed.
The annual meeting will get underway at the Alberton Community Centre at 9 a.m.
