‘I was driving in lobster,’ Beaches strewn with ‘millions’ of lobsters after storm surge along New Brunswick’s northeast coast

Jean Benoit says he never expected to see what he described as ‘millions’ of lobsters washed up on the beach in Val Comeau, N.B.,  on Saturday morning. “I was driving in lobster,” he said of his trip to the beach about 10 kilometres from Tracadie-Sheila on the Acadian Peninsula. Benoit and his friends routinely check the beach after storms but weren’t prepared for what they found New Year’s Eve, after Environment Canada warned of a storm surge the day before. “It was incredible all the lobster that we can get there,” Benoit said. “It was amazing. We cannot imagine what the wind can bring us, but it was too much.” He described seeing lobster, crabs and big clams washed up in stretches of 150 metres, then nothing for a stretch of 300 metres, then more shellfish again.
