LePage: August to be lobster month

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — Maine Gov. Paul LePage proclaimed August to be Maine Lobster Month.

The governor's proclamation celebrates Maine's lobstermen and this year's bountiful harvest.

It also serves as a kickoff for the Maine Lobster Promotion Council's new Lobster Lovers Campaign that includes promotions at retailers, restaurants and other places in Maine and New England.

Fishermen this summer have been dealing with a glut of lobsters that has driven down prices they get for their catch, as well as prices for consumers.
