The lobster season in northern New Brunswick officially opened at 6 a.m. Saturday morning.
Fishermen headed out from wharves across the region to set their traps in area 23 in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.
People gathered at MacEachern's Wharf in Tabusintac to watch the annual launch.
Fishermen will set their allotted amount of traps Saturday and haul them Sunday, May 1, to provide lobster lovers with their first taste of fresh seafood for 2016.
