Sea urchin fishery opens soon

The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Physical Planning, Natural Resources and Cooperatives informs the general public that the sea urchin (sea egg) fishery opens for five days from Aug. 24 – 28, both days inclusive.

The last open sea egg fishery period was in Oct. 2015, for seven days.

The fishery had previously been closed for six years due to low populations. It is therefore imperative that regulations governing the sea egg fishery be upheld in order to allow for the stock to replenish.
