Ah, so that story I saw was true.
One of these years, I will manage to be there with my RV during Maine Lobster Festival.
Just look it up, and it is going on right now. Aug 1 through Aug 5.
PS. The following is from a Web site. I may go to the stores here to see if the low price has trickled down to the local retail prices.
In Massachusetts, fishermen are selling lobster for less than $3 a pound, down by more than one-third over last summer. In Maine, the price this week has fallen to around $2 a pound, about half of what fishermen need to break even.
“It’s a real hardship,” said Robert Bayer, who directs the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine. “Some of these guys aren’t even going out.”
