PEI lobster harvesters in 26A vote to increase carapace size

A vote taken by PEI lobster harvesters in area 26A, the Northumberland Strait, will likely lead to an increase in the minimum lobster size. The proposal will add an additional 2 mm for a minimum total carapace length of 74 mm by 2020.

The increase in minimum lobster size has been controversial in PEI, because some in the industry feared a loss of customers who wanted the smallest sizes.
