If there are any further "breaks" or this continues, you may not have Maine Lobster available for consumers to enjoy.

The markets costs as currently controlled by Canadian processors makes it a losing battle at this time in terms of operating costs for an independant Maine fisherman to take his boat out each morning.

Enjoy your price break in the form of Canadian lobster.
