New fishing area designated

The Gallant Government says an amendment creating a new inshore fishery region in the Bay of Fundy will come into effect August 1st.

Fisheries Minister Rick Doucet says the change will give fishermen more opportunities to help develop a sustainable fish and seafood industry. The new Region 4 will consist of Lobster Fishing Area 36, from St. Martins to the U-S border as well as Campobello and Deer Islands.
