It’s lobster season and if there is a surprise is the low price of this crustacean!
When I was a teenager in Gaspésie, lobster was put inaccessible due to its price. I remember me and my friends went to the beach to catch small crabs that we were then cooking on a beach fire. The situation has changed in 2013. The lobster has become economic while the crab is for gourmet only. The proof: lobster sells for $ 5.88 a kilo compared to grocery crab which sells more than $ 30 a kilo. Sole that we were fishing on the edge of the docks and then return to the sea because nobody wanted it now sells about $ 20 a kilo…
Conclusion: if you fancy eating lobster this spring, you have two options. You rent a boat and go to sea with a fisherman and your cage or you rather the grocery store. In the case of sea travel, the experience will be very exciting yet not very economical!
Good spring season 2013!
