Lobster Season officially opens!

Lobster Season officially opened today with fishermen heading out as early as possible to catch the most lobster on the first day. But the rainy day definitely posed a problem for the fishermen, making the waters murky and decreasing visibility, and making the lobsters run away for shelter. At only $16 per pound for lobster tails at the co-operative, fishermen are looking elsewhere to get top dollar for the prized lobster tails.

A quick check at the fishing Caribena co-operative revealed the official count was very low – only about 150lbs was recorded at the end of the first day.

Some resorts are shelling out about $25 per pound of lobster tail. Lobster season runs from June 15 to October 15th, 2009!
