Lobster capital of the world: Shediac welcomes new lobster centre

For those who have always wanted to touch a lobster, Shediac, N.B., might be an ideal destination. 

The Homarus Centre opened its doors Sunday, offering an immersive experience into the world of the Northumberland Strait marine ecosystem. 

Pierre Dupuis, the centre’s director, said the opening was the first step.

“We finally made it,” he said. “It’s a bit of a relief now knowing that that day has come and it’s going smooth.”

Visitors will learn about lobster from beginning right up to the plate, said Dupuis.
