P.E.I. families love their fishing, as seen by a flurry of photos on social media taken on opening day this year.
“We got a lot of pictures coming in, we love to see those pictures,” said Rosie MacFarlane, freshwater fisheries biologist with the P.E.I. government, referring to photos posted to the Fish and Wildlife PEI Facebook page.
More than 9,000 Prince Edward Islanders purchased licences last season.
“There’s always been strong interest on P.E.I.,” said MacFarlane.
