Experts Predict Large Lobster Catch Next Year

Updated 1 year ago

Industry experts predict a big lobster catch in Maine next year, which would mean low prices for those who catch lobster for a living.The commissioner of the Maine Department of Marine Resources met with concerned fishermen on Thursday to talk about it.Lobstermen say prices for their catch last year were so low it was almost not worth pulling their traps.A veteran lobsterman from Scarborough says last year’s warm winter caused lobsters to arrive early.He hopes this year’s colder winter will mean the catch will return to being spread out so there isn’t such a glut on the market this summer.
