Lobster Season Delayed in Northern NB

The start of the Northern New Brunswick spring lobster fishery has been delayed until tomorrow. Rough weather forecast for today and ice conditions in the region prompted the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to delay today’s scheduled start of the season for lobster fishing area 23 until Monday at 6am. The area encompasses Miramichi Bay up to Campbellton. Last summer the fishing area harvested an estimated 64-million-dollars worth of lobster.
