We need some young blood in the game, all the old stubborn fishermen are ruining this industry not only for themselves but for dealers, packers and exporters. Go to Maine and learn a thing or two from the Americans.

Pretty bad when 1688 had to wait till the real leaders of district 34 held a meeting to get more than 50 people in a room with them. I wish the negative guys in this industry would just go away but not likely. Anyone that thinks our lobster stocks are in good shape get your head out of the sand. Did everyone forget the Ground fishery? What would it have hurt to try something?

Once again the fishery and any progressive ideas that would benefit it are held hostage by stubborn naysayers who can't see the big picture.

Never have I witnessed such a shamefull act of desperation as I saw in that meeting . A group of people who are against change is one thing but to put down another group who has obviously put tremendous effort in coming up with something that could benefit this fishery is just wrong . If the nay sayers would of actually put some thought into how this would work instead of putting all efforts into trying to destroy others maybe they would of saw some good in this . If this proposal was not something you agreed to than you had the right to vote on it . note: those who do not change with the times are usually pushed out first .

in my opinion fisherman are far to greedy they are to worried about show up there neihbor or the one down the street.ive been lobster fishing and i loved it but they run u ragget so your captian can think he is a G sporting 70 000 dollar vehicles 300 000 dollar homes like really.ive moved out west to make money and be with my kids and it sucks i would rather be on the water any day but to many greedy captians,and if you loose your life time they hit the wharf someone else is there to take your place forgotten already.i dont feel a bit bad for any captian i feel for the crew.

Based on the results of the meeting it appears the majority of license holders continue to feel that the situation in LFA 34 is not serious enough to warrant any changes to the current management plan. Fishing harder and landing more product to compensate for a lower price is probably not a sustainable business model for the long-term.

I sat at a meeting last year where a call for Ashton’s resignation was requested. Well wishes were granted and new management board members were voted in, but some are still not happy. Are they seriously suggesting that management board should be forced into resignation? Who shall take their places? From what I see these members take their own money, time and effort to do this job. Yes I can see the people lined up for this one. It seems a certain group of individuals will never be happy with who is voted in. It is stated that fishermen got no guarantee from the management board that the price would go up due to their efforts made. How can they predict the future? They are human beings lets not forget. I for one would like to tip my hat to them for trying something. I believe that whatever proposal would have been put out there would have been shot down. So thank-you gentlemen for your efforts.

I've been in Alberta for over two years. In that short time I've witnessed more change than my whole life combined. Old friends tell me that nothing has changed in Nova Scotia at all. Nothing good anyway. I hope that ferry comes soon. But one ferry won't change your life. Put your heads together and stop trying to out- do your neighbour. Your grandfathers would be ashamed of your ways and posh thinking. There won't be anything left for your kids. Oops, too late for them. They can't afford to take over the boat and industry anyways. Well, think about your grandkids then. I would rather be hunting in NS this season and looking forward to fishing this fall and spring. Being home with my family each night and not have to be away two- three weeks at a time like I am now. The money is great out here, but I would trade it all to be back in NS with all the good folks and serenity. It's not all roses out here folks. Do something different, and you might get a different result! Albert Einstein said: INSANITY is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Well now, we can't blame the government this time.
