PEIFA puzzled over prices: association says P.E.I. price is 25 cents behind New Brunswick’s

The Prince Edward Island Fishermen’s Association is describing it as “puzzling” that the price P.E.I. fall lobster fishermen are receiving for their catch is trending 25 cents a pound lower than what New Brunswick fishermen are receiving. The fall fishermen all fish in the same body of water, Lobster Fishing Area 25 in the Northumberland Strait. “Despite warmer than normal temperatures, harvesters report robust product is being delivered to buying stations in Prince County,” the PEIFA says. The association notes many fall fishermen invested fairly significantly in recent months in onboard storage equipment to maintain the quality of their catch. >click to read<18:25
