The Department of Fisheries reminds all lobster purchasers and the general public that the Lobster fishery will close on Tuesday February 28, 2017.
As we approach the final 7 days in the Lobster open fishery, the Department urges all purchasers to reduce the quantity of lobsters they purchase and actively monitor any remaining stocks. Be reminded that no establishment or person should have lobsters in their possession from Wednesday March 1, 2017.
Be further advised that all establishments must submit a Declaration form to the Department of Fisheries by March 6, 2017. Please be guided accordingly.
