Lobster Price Report Expected Thursday

A report examining lobster prices will be released tomorrow. Fisheries Minister Keith Colwell and members of an independent panel will unveil the finding of the report during a news conference in Halifax. The three member panel has a representative from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI. It was formed last spring to look into the factors behind the low price of lobster. Last season, fishermen were getting just over three dollars per pound in some areas of the Maritimes. Dumping day in LFA's 33 and 34 is set for November 25.
