Summit To Discuss Future Of Lobster Industry

Lobster makes more money for Atlantic Canadians than any other fishery--and a summit kicking off tomorrow in Halifax will determine the future of that industry.

Fisheries ministers from all Maritime provinces, as well as over 200 fishers, processors and industry experts, will discuss recommendations from the Maritime Lobster Panel. The ideas include establishing an independent lobster intelligence institute, developing better marketing, price-setting, and a process for an industry levy.

The summit runs until Thursday.
