Lobster Meal

Lobster season is now active off the coast of Nova Scotia. The lobster fishermen are getting about $3.00 per pound and lobster retail is $11.99 in my area. In previous years lobster fishermen would get over $5.00 per pound and the price retail was about $9.00. It appears the retailers are ripping people off judging by historical prices. The lower wholesale cost is not being passed on.

It is still a great opportunity to assist the fishermen by having one meal at least of fresh lobster, assuming one like lobster.

I saw that on the news a short while ago. That is a disgraceful way to treat those that feed us! Nice looking lobster Durgan!

Unfortunatly the seaon is not in my part of the province

The season is on the south west shores. Peggys cove, Digby, Shelburn and Yarmouth

Our season on this shore is about Mothers day

The retailers have an agreement between them so the fiherman cannot make any money

Both retailers agree to give the fisherman the same price

Many have given up the industry 3-4 years ago, My SIL gave up, they can't make any money. if you buy from the fishermen you get this price but not from the retailors
