Maritime fisheries ministers hope to meet to discuss lobster pricing

Fisheries ministers in the Maritimes say they plan to sit down and examine the pricing structure for lobsters as fishermen continue to tie up their boats to protest slumping prices. Nova Scotia Fisheries Minister Sterling Belliveau said Monday he is trying to set up a meeting with his counterparts from P.E.I. and New Brunswick later this week. Belliveau met with fishermen from throughout Nova Scotia to come up with ways to resolve the ongoing dispute, get fishermen back on the water and probe a pricing system that has frustrated lobster harvesters for years.
