It does not seem right to me that a good portion of lobsters caught in New England waters are now shipping to China. I view the waters of our coast as property of its citizens and feel the lobsters caught there should be offered at our markets instead of being sold to the highest foreign bidder. To add insult to injury, the US taxpayer will then subsidize the lobsterman when he falls on hard times due to regulations etc.. How many species has China destroyed with their voracious appetite ?

MB today had New Shell lobster for $6.99 /lb......

Yup, and new shell they are indeed. Stark difference in quality from what I posted just a couple weeks ago. Generally I don't mind because I actually prefer the flavor of new shell lobsters, but also it comes with a lot of dead loss and you'll probably see a lot of pre-cooked lobsters and cheap "mangers special" lobster meat on the shelves because of it. Last weekend I made the mistake of buying some of Market Basket's pre-cooked lobsters against my better judgement because I was in a rush and they were NOT fresh, at all. Bought four, threw two directly in the trash. Meat literally falling apart right out of the shell. Went back yesterday and got three live that I cooked myself and it was so much better. Having lobster rolls for lunch tomorrow lol

 

Don't get suckered like me. Enjoy the low prices, but be vigilant. Buy live and cook your own.

Wonder if it has anything to do with the silly high prices they were getting paid in the early spring this year. A friend of mine was getting paid a lot for the bugs coming off his boat.

I Had a lobster roll up in Maine yesterday,  the meat didn't really have any taste.

Oddly enough my buddy said the same thing about one he had in a different area.

The lobster I got and cooked from Newport on memorial day weekend was delicious.

Where did you go to eat? Bob’s Clam Hut next to KTP is awesome. Little pricey, but excellent quality.
