Lobster Group Looks For Better Prices

Lobster fishermen are hauling in a record catch after the first week of the fall fishing season. However, the big harvest is flooding the market and driving down prices. Lobster has been selling for roughly $3.00 per pound at wharfs from Shelburne to Digby. The Professional Lobster Fishermen's Association is calling on licence holders to either tie up their boats or hold onto their catch until prices increase. The group was established last year in an effort to drive up prices. The PLFA claims they need at least $5.00 to make a profit.
