Captain Norman Peters, who has been fishing lobster out of North Rustico, P.E.I. for more than 50 years, was on the wharf Saturday April 19, 2014, getting some his traps ready for the opening of the season April 30. The ice in some harbours and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence could be a problem for fishermen but most are not worried. The main thing on their mind is the price that will be paid for lobster. Peters said fishermen have to get at least $4 per pound to make it profitable.

Lobster fishermen in many ports on P.E.I. are preparing boats and gear for the opening of the lobster season April 30.

Less then one month ago any fishermen asked would say ice could be a problem on opening day, but not any more. With the exception of a few ports ice should not be a problem, one fishermen said Saturday. The last thing they want is a delay in the start of the season because unlike years ago there are no extentions granted by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.
