Harvest Area

Prince Edward Island estuaries are very well monitored to ensure the safety of our shellfish to the consumers. The Island has been divided into different areas to ensure product is tested on a regular basis from all across Prince Edward Island. The mussels are also monitored to try and predict when spawning will occur. Those areas are listed below:
