Weather Causes Delay For Lobster Fishers

High winds will push back Dumping Day for both LFA 33 and 34. Fishers in Shelburne, Digby and Yarmouth will only be delayed by one day. Lobster boats will now head out on Tuesday, November 29th. District 34 will depart at 6am while those in LFA 33 leave at 7am. The forecast is looking good for Tuesday giving fishers in both districts a better chance to set their traps.
