Oyster fishers

Seventy-five to 100 oyster fishers were back on the water in the upper section of the Brudenell River which has been closed for about two decades. They retrieved quality shellfish which were full of meat from the river bed. Paul MacNeill photo

Last week, the upper section of the Brudenell River was teeming with public wild oyster fishing for the first time in what is believed to be two decades.

Fisheries and Oceans issued an order dated September 20 opening most of the river from Brudenell Island upstream to oysters only.
