DARTMOUTH, N.S. — The newly established Lobster Council of Canada recently held its inaugural Annual General meeting in Dartmouth, N.S. and discussed how to stimulate the industry.
“There’s just a lack of communication, a lack of trust,” Council member Greg Thompson, a lobster Harvester from New Brunswick said at the meeting, according to The Toronto Star. “We have to work together. We can’st continue this infighting and hope to be a viable industry.”
The early workings of a council began to come together last year, when the industry virtually bottomed out, with fishermen seeing the lowest price for their catch in 20 years and some selling their haul for as little as three dollars per pound.
