Backstory: The Maine Lobster Glut

Thursday, August 09, 2012

This year’s lobster catch from Maine to Massachusetts has been near historic highs, causing prices to drop. But you probably wouldn’t know that if you ordered the crustacean in a New York restaurant. Dave Casoni, a lobsterman in Cape Cod, talks about what he’s catching this year. He's joined by Bob Bayer, professor and director of Animal and Veterinary Sciences at the University of Maine’s Lobster Institute.

Four opinions per three lobster fishermen. It is better than "two Jews - tree opinions".

"there are a lot of hands" -- there weren't before? did the lobster market add "hands" recently?? that doesn't make sense.

Why don't the lobstermen agree not to bring all of the lobster's in so the caught supply is lower?
