Eating "Between" Seasons on PEI

kayu | Jun 8, 2009 05:17 PM

I'm planning a trip on the last weekend of July and would desperately like to gorge on oysters and mussels. However, as I understand it, there are two fishing seasons on PEI: April 30 – June 30, and August 10 – October 10. Source:

What happens between these dates? Are oysters and mussels still readily available at restaurants and seafood suppliers? If so, are they stockpiled (with detrimental consequences for freshness/taste)?
