The hard work of harvesters, buyers and exporters means that seafood exports are nearing ONE Nova Scotia's 2014 goal of doubling in value within a decade.
Lobster harvesters in southwest Nova Scotia laid their traps on November 30, on what is known as Dumping Day, to kick off the fall lobster season. The value of Nova Scotia’s lobster industry continues to grow, with exports totalling more than $579 million in 2014.
When the air becomes fresh and the leaves to turn a mosaic of colours, Atlantic salmon return to many rivers across Nova Scotia.
