Eco-certification of Îles-de-la-Madeleine lobster – Government support for fishermen’s project

The financial support, to be paid over a three-year period, will be used to take the final steps toward enabling members of the Association des pêcheurs des Îles-de-la-Madeleine to meet all the criteria for obtaining eco-certification. This initiative will guarantee to buyers that lobster fishing in Îles-de-la-Madeleine is carried out in accordance with the principles of sustainable development and regeneration of stocks.
