Dig Into A Feed

Digging into a “feed’ of lobster should be on the “to do’ list of any Island visitor. Whether you cook them yourself or head to one of the lobster suppers that dot our beautiful province, you are in for a treat. Lobster fishing has been a part of Island life for generations and is a key ingredient to the economic survival of many rural communities.

With  two fishing seasons across the Island it is not hard to get fresh lobster on the Island all summer long.  Boats head out from harbours on the Gulf of St. Lawrence side of the Island in May and June. While the season on the south shore of the Island runs from August until early October.

Wild PEI lobsters are not only delicious—they are good for you. They are low in fat and carbohydrates and high in protein and they are also an excellent source of vitamin B12 and heart healthy, Omega-3 fatty acids.

The words fishing and Prince Edward Island go very much hand in hand.  Passed down from generation to generation, the fishing industry on PEI has remained prominent, with over 1,200 fishermen from coast to coast, similar numbers to that of 30 years ago! Island fishermen are commitment to making sure the fishery will be there for the next generation by using environmentally friendly practices.

Insider’s Tip – When cooking your own lobster, the pot should be three quarters full of salt water with 3 teaspoons of salt per 4 cups of water.  Or do as the locals do and use Island seawater! The general guideline is to cook your lobster for 12-15 minutes or up to 20 minutes for larger, market size lobster.
