P.E.I. Fisherman’s Association, Murphy Group of Restaurants, and Charlottetown Airport team up to celebrate Mother’s Day

P.E.I. Fisherman’s Association, Murphy Group of Restaurants, and Charlottetown Airport teamed up last week to celebrate Mother’s day and the Island’s lobster season.

Travellers arriving at the Charlottetown airport last Sunday were greeted by P.E.I.’s famous “Bearded Skipper” Norman Peters, who demonstrated to passengers how lobster traps are made.

Passengers also had a chance to try some Island lobster as Chef Adam Loo of Merchantman Fresh Seafood & Oyster Bar prepared lobster rolls.

“P.E.I.’s lobster industry is such a big part of our Island economy and we thought it was important to show our support for our Island fisherman at the start of their season,” said Doug Newson, CEO of Charlottetown Airport.

“Mother’s Day is one of the bigger days for Lobster sales on the Island,“ noted Norman Peters. “There is something special about getting the whole family together and having a big lobster feast. We wanted to share a piece of that Island culture here today with visitors and mom’s arriving at the Charlottetown Airport.”

    Nice to know passengers coming into Charlottetown had a chance to have lobster, while a lot of Islanders can barely buy a can of tuna, would have been nice to have had just 1.
