N.L. needs lob­ster nurs­eries

The Compass - - Editorial -

The cod fish­ery is doomed be­cause global warm­ing has moved peak cod re­pro­duc­tion north­wards.

But we can take the pre-bank­ruptcy am­bi­tions to heart and start lob­ster nurs­eries to seed a new fish­ery in lob­ster.

Lob­ster are more valu­able than cod and their peak pop­u­la­tion must be head­ing north and east of Nova Sco­tia driven by global warm­ing.

What I rec­om­mend is for the prov­ince to re-es­tab­lish lob­ster nurs­eries to pop­u­late New­found­land’s west and south coasts with lob­ster. Wil­liam R.W. Small­wood writes from Con­cep­tion Bay South
