The province reminded lobster fishermen to make the season safe by wearing personal floatation devices when operating on the main deck where traps, nets and other equipment can result in falls overboard. Fishermen are also encouraged to wear appropriate PPE, including hardhats, gloves and protective footwear, in other areas where injuries can occur. Last year, there were eight fatalities in the fishing industry and 407 injuries.
