WHAT IS THE LOBSTER FORUM?
A forum for lobster fishermen to discuss the future of their industry
The Southwest Nova Scotia Lobster Forum
On September 21, 2016, a forum was held in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, bringing together lobster fishermen to address a number of critical issues facing the lobster fishery in the region. The forum was planned and hosted by five fishermen’s associations: the Coldwater Lobster Association, the Maritime Fishermen’s Union, the Bay of Fundy Inshore Fishermen’s Association, the Fundy Fixed Gear Council and the Scotia Fundy Inshore Fishermen’s Association.
The second annual Southwest Nova Scotia Lobster Forum will be held on September 20, 2017
