Maine Lobster Price | Wholesale | Retail .
lobster distributors and processors to sell whole lobster claws as an individual item . Why this was not simply a matter of common sense in the past simply bewilders me. Regarding current lobster prices its no surprise the price of( New shell) lobster commonly known as a ( shedder) is approximately $2.00 less per pound then the hard shell lobster .. I am not sure how much sense this really makes since out of about every lobs of [new shell] lobsters a fisherman brings in during the peak months for selling lobster only about 4% of them are hard shell .During winter and spring months all Maine lobsters caught will mainly be hard shell but the percent of lobster in Maine actually going out to these deeper waters to catch them is much lower than now and landings are low. Getting down to the niddy gridy of things and being a lobster dealer myself I am going to quote the bottom line boat price average of Maine lobster today . For new shell lobsters right off the boat , the buyers are paying the fisherman any were between (Updated 11/19/10) $3.75 a pound to $4.15 a lb. For hard shell buyers are paying any were from $4.95 a pound to $5.70 a lb (4/26/11) .Wholesale lobster costs need to be marked up a minimum by a broker of a 0.lb on these prices for any money to be made.
