I have always thought it odd that lobster is so readily available in towns and cities so far from the ocean. This weekend lobster was on sale in London. The dinner shown cost less than $5.45. The grocery store cooler was brimming with fresh, cooked lobster. I wondered how many they would sell at such bargain prices. Later, I googled lobster and discovered that the price paid for lobsters has collapsed. According to CTV, "Hundreds of lobster harvesters in Newfoundland and Labrador have stopped fishing altogether to protest prices . . . "
