HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 19, 2011) - The Honourable Keith Ashfield, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, got a lobster's eye view of the Halifax Harbour today when he met with representatives of Nova Scotia Webcams and Murphy's Cable Wharf who have worked together to place a webcam in a lobster cage at the bottom of the Halifax Harbour.

"I am pleased to see the amount of interest generated by this very unique project," said Minister Ashfield. "The lobster cam allows people from all over the world to get a closer look at an industry that is an important economic driver for Nova Scotia and the rest of Atlantic Canada."
