Called “Dumping Day” as the lobstering season opens. They dump pots off their boats hoping the season is safe and prosperous. The fleet is blessed in that same theme.
My grandfather who I never met because he passed away before I was born and my mom’s oldest brother were part of this for a long time. Till about 45-50 years ago.

Lobster fishing areas 33 and 34, which include the coast from just east of Dartmouth, down the South Shore all the way up to Digby, comprise Canada's largest commercial lobster fishery. According to DFO, fishermen in the area last year recorded landings worth $502 million, about 57 per cent of total Canadian lobster landings.

The day after can be "replace fishing boats' worn out engine parts day" for the coast guard ship stationed for when they sink.
