Edwin McKie, Freda McKie

Edwin and Freda McKie talk about what it means to go lobstering on Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada, touching upon the gear they use, the regulations in place, and the different social dynamics on different parts of PEI. This leads into a comparison with how the fishery is run and regulated and it brings back memories of Maine lobstermen and students visiting PEI in recent years.
