Strong winds and rough seas interrupted the recovery mission for two Tignish fishermen who are presumed to have drowned after their lobster boat capsized on Tuesday.
The recovery operation has been scaled back for now due to weather conditions.
Recovery surveillance will resume once the weather clears.
The Kyla Anne took on water a few kilometres from the shore at North Cape late Friday afternoon and the boat capsized.
The captain of the boat, Glen DesRoches and Maurice (Moe) Getson are still missing.
A younger man on board managed to make it shore safely although it took him two hours to swim back to land.
