Lobster season delayed

April 21, 2021

Bad weather means the region's lobster fishermen will have to wait a few days before putting cages in the water.

The opening of the season in zone 20 was originally scheduled for today, but because of bad weather which is forecasted, the opening is postponed until Saturday.

The decision affects 140 of the 160 permits in the Gaspesia region.

The delay shouldn't bother fishermen too much, as a good season is anticipated and a better market price is expected this year.
