We’ll soon have an idea of when Dumping Day will take place.

Port reps will meet with Environment Canada and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans tomorrow morning for their first weather call.

Dan Fleck with the Brazil Rock 33/34 Lobster Association is starting to get a sense of how their season will shape up once it starts.

“I’m anticipating a good price and great catches based on what we’re seeing in other areas, LFA’s 36 and 38, what they’re getting for prices, $6.75 a pound but we’re still a few days out from when the scheduled opening is.”

There are still concerns surrounding bait stocks. Fleck discussed the bait situation heading into the season.

“It’s in great demand but due to recent revisions or decisions, the herring quota was cut this year by 36%, complete closure of the mackerel fishery and prohibition on fish imports from Russia have all contributed to the need to explore alternative baits.”

Hear more about lobster fishing season with Dan Fleck and DFO’s Area Chief of Resource Management for Southwest Nova Dwayne Surette this Saturday morning on Y95’s The Weekender.
