METEGHAN, N.S. — Nova Scotia Lobster fishermen are divided as some refuse to join a boycott intended to encourage higher lobster prices.
“You’ve got to stick together. If you don’t stick together, you got nothing,” Gordie Stoddard, a protester, was quoted as saying by the Calgary Herald.
“The lobster fishery is the last there is around here. When that’s gone, this will be a ghost town”
Fishermen are hoping to reduce supply of lobster and to drive the price to at least $5.50 per pound from the current price of $5.
