The Price of Lobster

Close on the heels of the BDN’s article on this topic earlier this week, the Press Herald has published an article about the price of lobster meat.

Wintry weather and a cool spring have limited supply, as lobsters have stayed put offshore and lobstermen have stayed home, waiting for the lobsters to migrate closer to shore with warmer water. Add in the international competition for Maine lobster in Europe and Asia, and lobster prices are becoming harder than ever to predict.
