Pure Mussel

While the main commercial fishery on Prince Edward Island used to be cod, there is now a moratorium on groundfish. The commercial salmon fishery closed in the 1970s. They still fish for halibut, but according to one fisherman I spoke to, the only fishermen making any money are fishing mussels.

I particularly liked the looks of this boat, aptly named “Pure Mussel”.

      Thanks Russ! I’m in Nova Scotia right now. Next stop is Newfoundland!! I’m really looking forward to that.

      Thanks Phillip, I love the name too, I told my Dad it should be his new boat (since he wants me to bring one home to the west coast for him!).
