October is an important time for the fishing community in Albert County. The fall lobster season begins on October 14. The Alma Fleet Launch is a time when the community shows its support to the fishermen.
Lobster fishing has long been a way of life for coastal communities in New Brunswick and our neighbouring provinces. It is also a large part of our economy. Many tourists and city dwellers flock here to get their feed of lobster each year, but most of the lobsters caught in Alma are sold elsewhere, some exported around the world.
In anticipation of the upcoming season, here are several fun and delicious recipes to get your taste buds tingling with this month’s catch!
You can also find more recipes in our extensive Recipe Collection.
