The North Atlantic Lobster industry, together with both US and Canadian Fisheries agencies, has had laws and regulations in place for many years to ensure the future of the industry.These regulations have proven successful and are largely responsible for the health of the fishery. These regulations have proven successful and in a large part responsible for the overall health of the fishery.
Below you will find some of the methods and regulations used to ensure lobster sustainability. First implemented in the 1800s, these regulations vary by region but have endured and served as a foundation for today’s standards.
Protecting the Habitat
In recent years sinking lines have been added in areas of Right Whale habitat to eliminate entanglement of these precious mammals. More recently, many lobster fisheries have undergone the MSC Assessment Process to reaffirm commitment to conservation practices.
Carapace Size Limit
Size limits, introduced in 1874 and reintroduced in the 1930s, eliminate the harvest of juvenile lobsters and enable them to mature and limit the total catch. This ensures the lobster has lived long enough to replace itself.
“VNotch” Berried Lobsters
A “berried” lobster is an eggbearing female. Per regulations, when one is caught a ‘V’ notch is cut into the tail and the lobster is released. Lobsters that are caught and have a previous V notch are also required to be returned to sea. Since 1872, this has enhanced future harvests by protecting the most productive female population.
Escape vents allow undersized lobsters easy entry and exit from the trap. They also provide food for the juvenile population (Many juveniles understand how to visit and exit traps). Biodegradable “ghost panels” allow lobsters to escape from traps that may become lost on the bottom due to storms or other issues.
Since the 1960s, trap limits help ensure a manageable count of traps per area. Each trap is tagged with license holder information and closely monitored.
Limited Entry of Licenses
Since the 1960s, license caps were established to limit the total number of lobsterman per area.
Lobster Fishery Areas
Management areas 41 in Atlantic Canada were established in the early 1970s to ensure a steady flow of lobster and ensure nursery areas are avoided at certain periods.
