FISHERIES 2011 Special SectionIn a special Fisheries section of PEI’s newspaper “The Eastern Graphic”, reporter Cindy Chant describes the lobster tagging program that is part of Ecotrust Canada’s ThisFish initiative.

A British Columbia-based organization, Ecotrust Canada, recently presented western PEI fishermen with an in-depth look at a newly launched website www.thisfish.info

But this isn’t just any ordinary website. It is used to inform fishermen about the progress of an innovative traceability program started in 2010 in LFA 25, the fall fishery.

Chelsey Ellis, Atlantic co-ordinator for the lobster traceability program, has spearheaded the project from the start.
