Giving Lobster the Cold Shoulder

Sumlobster_mainemer is finally here, what better way to celebrate than with a lobster bake and what better dish to serve then fresh Maine Lobster.  Over the past few years it seems that China has mirrored our taste for Maine Lobster as export demand grew last year by 7.4% to 55,500 tons at a value of over $126 million.  In fact, total exports from Maine contributed around $1 billion to the state’s economy.

I’ve put together some interesting facts on how lobsters are shipped and what China’s recent restrictions are doing to Maine Lobstermen.  Please take a look at my latest article in the American Journal of Transportation.  You can find it here:
