Angry lobstermen in New Brunswick have moved their protest to the office of federal Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield in Fredericton, while Maine’s congressional delegation is asking the U.S. State Department to step in. The fishermen are upset about low-priced Maine lobster and have blocked shipments being delivered to processing plants in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. New Brunswick’s fisheries minister says all New Brunswick lobster processing plants stopped operations on Wednesday. The Maritime Fishermen’s Union had hoped for compensation from the New Brunswick government, but the province has said it can’t offer any money. U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine has asked Secretary of State Hilary Clinton to investigate the dispute. U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud has also been in contact with Clinton’s office.
